I've had a low grade cold for a week that is mainly irritating at night when I am trying to sleep. I still have plenty of energy to run etc but yesterday I had no voice and could only whisper. I haven't tried to talk today yet.
I heard on the news that Venice is going to outlaw tourists from using rollerbags claiming noise pollution and the ruining of bridges. Fine for using one? $620. They do have plenty of porters offering to carry your bags but it would be impossible to figure out which ones are scam artists and which ones are not. In Bologna, I had to wrestle with these porters trying to grab my bag (and then probably holding them for ransom). It put me on edge as they were so insistent and in my face. So I guess we went to Venice just in time though we probably used the rollerbags for only 100 feet in the main islands as our hotel was close to the vaporetto stop.
