Venice - A truly unique city

Venice is a beautiful town, albeit a little touristy. Something like a quarter of the streets are canals, which makes it easy to get lost and makes the city very unique - definitely worth seeing.

There were lots and lots of these papier mache mask stores, whose connection to Venice I don't know but which made me think of my aunt Marie, who has a few similar masks at her place.

Most of the driving is done on boats, so that the main local bus lines and the taxis are boats rather than cars or buses, as are delivery trucks (we saw an electronics shop getting their merchandise delivered by boat)

Here is a fruit stand on a boat - good way to save on rent I suppose

There's a massive square with a cathedral and some old shops (now the rich people shopping district).
