Dorsoduro was my goal today. It consists of two parts. One part is connected to the rest of Veneto and another part is an island onto itself. The island portion used to be an industrial segment but industry has since been abandoned. Lots of housing there now and some restaurants along the water front but not a lot of touristy stuff going on. Good for a stroll but not a lot of stuff going on.
Dorsoduro on the Veneto side is a lot more interesting. A lot of the upper crust Venetians live here. For the most part, it’s away from the tourists, so there’s lots of shops and restaurants catering more to the locals. You see more markets, schools, theaters and such.

A ship yard that looks older than it needs to be.

Be careful of the gypsies.
They are hiding.
They are here and there.
They are every where.. oh crap she saw me.
Gondolas which I didn’t partake on during this trip. Price is a rip off.
Painter at San Marcos.
San Marcos drizzled.
No one at the outdoor cafe today.
Ughm.. more San Marcos.
Another angle of… sigh.
Arriving at San Marcos from Dorsoduro while on the vaporetto.. yah the pics are in anachronological order.

Walking from our bb to vaporetto… in Santa Croce.. (i think)
Bad day for a gondola ride.. plus it’s more interesting at night. It’s also more expensive at night.
