happy birthday jac! in venice, italy

i tagged along for jac's birthday excursion to venice! we knew it would be touristy but wow! holy smokes! i thought the place was magical despite the crowds: gorgeous architecture, so many boats, canals and waterways, bridges, squares...jac was the most impressed by the gargantuan cruise liners leaving port (one of which blasted classical music upon departure).

we had a hard time finding good eats in venice; one slice of pizza reminded me of grade school lunch in a bad way. almost all of the food was overpriced and mediocre! we did find one or two decent meals in four days but good gelato and creme caramel!
