Europe Part 3
Ah Venice! This was another spectacular day. Warm, pleasent, and full of fun. Then I learned a little history of the two pillars at the waters edge, the two you cannot see in this photo since I am between them. It was tradition to have the condemed executed between them for hundreds of years. So any actual venitian citizen even today, tends not to walk between them because it is bad luck. Anyhow I tried to eleviate the bad luck by tossing a coin into the fountain in the Doges Palace. The palace people made 2 Euros out of my superstition. There was a lot of money in that fountain.
