Unfortunately, Barbara(forza) couldn't come to yoin us having lot of work to do for the coming week.
Others?, no I didn't expect them, they were omly joking as usual.
It was Sandy's idea watching Regatta from Ponte Academia, probably the best possible sight for such an colourful event.
A number of boats with competitors passed under the bridge in order to get the starting position somwhere aroun Vecchia Dogana.
There was fire in a small canal, very close to our position, so we saw Venice Fire Department in action.
Ambulance joined too, just in case, but there wasn't need for the intervention.
After we spend a couple of hours on the bridge, waiting for Regatta to start, the local police came on the bridge shouting "circolare" and that was the end of our hopes. We had to leave for the security reasons. The only remaining spot was at nearby Piazza Barnaba, not that bad position but cannot be compared with Ponte Academia. This is the first shot I did there.
I dunno how much could possible cost the ticjet for watching Regatta from this stage, must be a fortune. The gondoliere at Piazza Barnaba asked us 20 euros for a chair, 30 euros if watching from the bridge and 50 euros if seatting in the gondola. Can you belive it? I am not surprised with the fact that many tourists avoid Venice lately!
