Lesson 1: Please check your train schedules one day before departing for obscure towns in Austria.
We failed lesson 1 and are waiting 6 hours for the next train to take us to Verona, where we'll meet another train to meet another train to take us to Lienz, Austria, small city neighbor of our final destination: Dolsach.
Venice is cold and foggy and we wore pretty much everything we brought to keep from dying. The cold caused a lack of interest in Gondolas and gondoliers from the ladies so the romance was less exciting in Venice than everyone might have hoped.
On the other hand, we happened upon the Peggy Guggenheim museum and saw some picassos and a magritte original that Jane has a print of in her office. I bought her the print and we happened upon the original. Cool.
The girls still alternate each day, one being grumpy one morning, the other the next. Food and caffelattes are the secret to my happiness.
Jane says hi, and if Erin were to have me write "hi," she would then not want me to read it as she never wants me to peer over her shoulder. She should know by now I'm nosy.
If you ever find yourself in Venice, Osteria al Portego is a tight little eatery a few blocks from the Rialto bridge...
