It was graduation day. The streets and squares were crowded with young people wearing crowns of laurel leaves and bearing armloads of congratulatory flowers.  “DoctoreDoctore!”  chanted crowds of well-wishers.  Very exciting.  Somehow, Margarita and self got pushed along by the throng towards San Marco Square, and suddenly there we were, in an unimaginably open space, facing the sea.

Venice Day 2

Fashionable Flood Boots!

Fashionable Flood Boots!

We were somewhere by the Rialto.  Self has been very good and not gone into a single store, not even a grocery.  Well, she and Margarita did wander into Flavia’s, which sells costumes, but were just extremely nosy and pried into everything and tried on masks.  We will return to buy, because Flavia herself was at the store and was the soul of graciousness!

Anyhoo, self could not resist posting at least one picture from today’s adventures, and this is a picture of a store window display.  Note the extremely super-tall boots!  Self thought at first they were made for a giant, but Margarita (who knows everything) said they needed them here because of the floods.  But, being Italian boots, they must be in fashionable lime green.

The women here are so beautiful.  As beautiful as the women self saw in India last year.  But with the added “zing” of flaunting the skinniest jeans self has ever seen a woman wriggling into.  Italian women have such style.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
