My favorite place this time was Venice. I had looked forward to riding in a gondola, and it was fun even though our gondolier,
Nicholino, could not sing. The other best thing was feeding the pigeons in St. Mark's Square. My mom and I saved one’s life when we were able to cut away a lot of string that had one of its feet tied into a knot, and he could not walk.
