We found an Indian restaurant, called Gannesh Ji on Peter's Kindle so we are going there for his birthday meal.  

Cool early morning

Peter had a birthday apple cake from an up-market shop with good coffee.   A tiny shop with no tables for customers;  people stood where they could.  Many outlets are very small and have very few  facilities for customers - no seating, no toilets.

Israeli Guest House


Askenazi v Sephardi

 There was a Jewish Museum and a Synagogue and a display of the glass figures unfortunately too expensive.

Fondamenta del Rio Marino dei Garzoti - this channel was excavated by hand by a man named Marino Dandolo.

We had lunch in the Indian restaurant Ganesh Ji;  lamb rogan josh for PJ and chicken vindaloo for me, neither was very hot, but very good to have a tasty meal and I had a piece of potato in mine...   Peter had lager, but cider has not penetrated the area yet.
