Sitting in a Lido Cafe

It is 5:30 on a Monday afternoon.  While writing this entry I wanted to experience life on the Lido di Veneto.  I am in a cafe/bar where it appears to be the local hangout spot.  Sitting next to the canal and under an umbrella, I’ve got it made with lots of chips and a glass of vino.  Ten feet away from my table is the walkway and bike path.  It’s not a sidewalk, because everything here is a sidewalk.  Remember… no cars. The bike path is defined by two white lines running parallel on the cobblestone.  Beyond that is the “bar” supporting a weathered red and white striped awning inviting all who respond to enter and enjoy!

Ummmm…I can’t wait!
