Getting Lost in Venice
Yes, we are in Venice.
Our first night here, we ventured out just to sight-see, without any true destination in mind. We found a great little trattoria in a tiny square (Campo). We had a lovely seafood dinner. We were glad we had sat inside, for all at once, all the diners from the outside tables had to make a mad dash into the restaurant because of a rain shower. By the time we finished dinner, the rain had stopped and the sidewalks were barely wet. So we had an easy stroll back to the apartment…..with just a little glitch. We got lost.
We were in a little dead end campo, trying to read the map by street light, when a couple from England came along…they were lost, also, and then a young couple wandered by, with the same problem. It was funny, because here were 6 people, all wanting to be in different places, and we were all in this small space. I said to the English man that one can expect to get lost in Venice. He told me this was his eighth visit to Venice and he thought he knew his way around. I don’t know how many times I have been to Venice, but I always get lost.
