"You brought the birds here!"
We spend the day walking through Venice; I feel like a rat in a maze. There are no cars, only pedestrian walkways. The only transportation is boats.

The Piazza San Marco is filled with pigeons; you can buy a bag of feed for 2,000 lira. People who do are quickly overwhelmed by the birds. Children scream in terror.

We visit the Correr Museum and see Neoclassical statues and Renaissance bronzes. After, we cross the piazza to Ducal Palace. It's filled with the Duke's apartments and many bureaucratic chambers. The most interesting parts, however, were the prison and the armory. The armory had walls and walls filled with weapons.

Later, we enjoy a pizza dinner and return to the hotel to watch Super Zap. It's a show of random minute long clips of sports and scantily-clad women. Things are different in Europe.
