Something in the window catches your eye. A man dressed in baroque costume wearing a long black cloak has stopped just outside of the glass and is peering in. Though it is not fully dark outside, it is almost so and the man appears eerily mysterious under one of the hanging lamps above the window. The top half of his face is covered in a bejeweled half mask. You don’t want to stare since you aren’t sure if the man is looking at the sandwiches on display, or if he is looking further into the bar, directly at you; it is hard to tell. This is the first costumed person that you have seen since your arrival. You wonder if he is a Venetian. You try to distract yourself for a moment by rustling through your coat pocket for some euros to pay the tab. The barman has been in conversation with other locals and hasn’t looked up in 10 minutes. You feel comfortable leaving the unbroken bill as payment without getting your change, but as you look over your shoulder and out of the window, you see that the man is still outside and most certainly staring directly at you. His lips appear to be turned up faintly, a hint of an uninvited smile and you begin to feel a little chill creep under your coat.
IF you feel ready to leave the bar and walk on to your hotel, turn to page...? IF you are undecided about leaving the bacaro just yet and wish to stay a little longer, turn to page... IF you feel inclined to exit by way of a door at the rear of the bar to avoid the calle out front, turn to page...
You’ve just arrived in Venice, Italy. It is the start of the magical Carnival festival and you’ve come prepared with many elaborate disguises. With so many delights available to you, what will you see and do? Sample the cuisine, stroll through the fish market, or take a high-speed boat ride? Attend a set of Vivaldi concertos, float along on a scenic gondola ride or attend a masked ball in a private palazzo? Will you take that tour of a haunted 16th century plague island? Will you run for your life? It is up to you of course…welcome to Venice!Biographie de l'auteur :
