The number one problem during Carnival

Ice skating in the Campo San Polo

Venice Carnival is now underway, and the Campo San Polo (which is about a block from our apartment) has been equipped with a temporary ice-skating rink and a carousel.

At 11 p.m., we passed the rink with our dog Maggie when we saw a group of kids skating together, doing conga lines and a group hug. It was a refreshing change from watching drunk twenty-somethings urinating in streets and canals during the first evening of Carnevale.

You can see the skaters in action below:

That looks like such good fun. I'm surprised to see so many youngsters who own ice skates; it can't be a common pastime in Venice?
