Left Innsbruck early and crossed over to Italy in AM. Went thru the Dolomite Mtn range and was beautiful. People different here. Saw a man wetting on side of road in full view. Stopped for lunch in mountains.
Arrived in Venice about 7:30 PM. After dinner went into Venice and rode gondolas. Rode with Pat, Karen, Mary & Patty. Sang and cut up - was fun. Drank wine - WOW!
