Finally got a chance to visit Venice on our trip to Europe, the day we visited Venice it was raining and got cold. As always I forgot to carry my jacket, so bought a stripy one from one of the tourist shops. I thought it was cool, only to find out later that almost 200 other people were wearing the same one, including some kids. Nevertheless it protected me from cold and at times my camera from rain. Sharing some pictures here. Venice has a great contrast - one can find some exlusive high end brand outlets in the midst of old canal alleys. Interesting city to spend a day in.
