Saturday in Venice

       A wonderful day in Venice and surrounding islands, Murano & Burano!  In conjunction with the Festa del Redentore we enjoyed a fantastic fireworks display last night at 11:30-12:10!  Amazing!!  Because it was so late and there were thousands--possibly hundreds of thousands of people there--we had to wait for a long time standing.  Daniel said, "If this isn't good, I'm going to wring Martin's neck (our tour guide who said we shouldn't miss it) when we get on the bus in the morning."  (We were all exhausted last night.). After it was over he agreed that Martin could live another day.  :o). It was well worth the loss of sleep and the crowded atmosphere!
      We're off to Austria today with a stop in Boltzano to see the Ice Man Museum.
