New entrepreneurs on Campo San Margherita

On this summer like day, dozens of young children were offering their unwanted books and toys for sale. Bargaining was hot and heavy.

This pistore looked like someone had given it a good polish.

Now, what in heck is a “Borgoloco”? It’s the first one I’ve noticed so far. I’m sure someone will be able to enlighten us.

  1. Well, Andrew, you’ll just have to get over here to Venice, won’t you?

    So you found out what the anti-piddle things are called! And that’s the one that looks like a mushroom.

    • There was a shiny lookalike around the corner, too. I think the mushroom one is in Dorsoduro, if my memory serves me right, and I haven’t laid eyes on it yet.

    Found it online Yvonne; Borgoloco means a village-like district.

    There are so many French tourists here, as always. I’ll try Par avion on the next ones who ask directions.

    Anything to help us learn Italian! I try to speak Italian with one of my coworkers…of course since he is Mexican he responds in Spanish but he is very willing to help me practice…not so much the Hawaiian guy who insists on adressing me in very incorrect French.(ie…his latest when he sees me is to say “par avion”…he has no idea what it means).

    Hmmm… maybe they are other comic books? Well, almost ANYTHING can help me at this point. My Italian starts to get a bit better (painfully slow) and then melts away.
