I remember when I was around 10 years old, still living in Poland and reading about this place with my Grandma. Always dreamt about coming here to see the Coloseum in person. It's much smaller than I imagined, pretty amazing nonetheless.

You are my Eurostar.

This bad boy has power reclining seats and power sunshades, ahhhh the simple things that impress me. We only got free cofee and a biscuit that, no shit…looked like a tiny turd.

Quick update RE: Tatoos.

Just had a quick consultation with some Brits regarding the “above ass tatoos”. The proper term in London is “Tramp Stamp”. There you have it. I’m getting a surfing tatoo to show people that I’m “outdoorsy” and “athletic”.

Italian HD.

Hotel entertainment. A 12 inch CRT TV with a picture so fuzzy that you can’t tell if you’re watching football or soccer. The pot smokers (Netherlands) just killed the baguettes (French) 4-1. I believe this is the highest scoring game so far in the series.

Ahhh Venice.

Absolutely stunning. The narrow alleyways, random tunnels and
countless bridges. We spend about 7 hours a day just hiking around.
No cars here, no bicycles, not even a skateboard. Everything from
public transportation, taxis, and the movement of goods travels
through the narrow canals. Cruising through them on a barge is
something out of a storybook. The food is awesome too. It's very
clean and very friendly here, I will miss this place.

So stoked to have been able to watch a couple EuroCup games here,
including an Italian one….the whole town comes alive. I can't
believe I would be able to do anything like this ever in my life.

Off to Rome on the Eurostar tomorrow, early morning, very early. I'll
be walking through the Coloseum tomorrow, holy damn!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In memory.

Of Pijjie the pigeon who has lost his life here after a lengthy battle
with pigeonietous.

Off to Venice.

Just off to Venice on the Eurostar, first class of course, we're not
animals. Just hung out in their private lounge, away from the tourists
and the riff raff of the train station. Included dinner and drinks are
arriving shortly, they better have today's New York Times.


And we got some mozarella smothered anchovy pizza for dessert. It was great and really cheap.
