Venice Day 1

Interior:  Santa Maria Gloriosa del Frari

Little Bridge, vicinity of Campiello S. Toma

Margarita and I had very fine Turkish dinner (dolmas, spanakopita, and couscous with lamb and vegetables.)  Our waiter told us that the restaurant was the only dining establishment in Venice to offer couscous with lamb.  Dee-lish!  Afterward, the management sent out two complimentary glasses of limoncello (Very good; probably, addictive) for us, and Margarita and self tossed our very enjoyable first night in Venice.
