Venice Day 9: The Neighborhood

San Toma’ is a quiet neighborhood; it feels home-y.  There’s a small supermarket just around the corner, where early this morning self bought a loaf of bread and a thick wedge of Asiago.  Venice restaurants are not cheap; the Billa Supermarket is a godsend!

The Next Street Over (About a 5-Minute Walk From the Apartment)

Self wondered what the sign meant and decided, after closer inspection, that the building must be some kind of bed-and-breakfast.  She’s always on the lookout for such places, everywhere she goes.  One never knows when such information can come in handy!

Today, also, self spied a poster at the entrance to a café in San Toma’.  It was about the photography of a man named Gotthard Schuh.  The exhibit, called L’Ultima Venezia (The Last Venice), is on display at the Palazzo Loredan, Campo Santo Stefano, seat of the Istituto Veneto di Scienze, Lettere e Arti.  (Where is that? Perhaps Margarita can find it; she can find anything!)

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
