corner view :: hot
Venice + July = HOT = much hydration = frequent potty breaks = lots of encounters with funky, icky bathrooms = unpleasant experience
Moral of the story: Don't visit Venice in sweltering July when the rest of God's kingdom is there, and choose your bars (where you stop to buy a coffee, spritz or additional bottle of water so you and the little people with you can use the bathroom) wisely! This one fooled us from the street, with a lovely facade and tables on the sidewalk. The toilet is actually outside, behind the bar in a sort of out house; inside of the little hovel is just gross. I suppose the positive is that it is well ventilated! We currently have a visitor from the States, so we are making the rounds of hot spots in the Veneto region during his stay...otherwise I don't think I'd venture to Venice in July. Ever.
For more corner views, visit Francesca. I'm off to make a pie. It is the 4th of July, after all.
