Shine a light on Italy

Only a short note from Venice today, off course with a Daily Picture.

Don’t know when the next will be. Internet access in Italy is hard to find due to anti-terroristm laws. Whenever you want to access the internet it has to be registered, you have to show your ID of which a copy will be made. Off course, as Keynes would have predicted over 100 years ago, internet access is then small in supply, high in demand (maybe I’m a little bit biased in that assumption) and high in price.

Hard thing for me to accept, used to free internet in every bar as in Amsterdam and off course having mobile internet (as in Croatia). Italy, back in the future. And Mr. Future, please shine a light on Italy. But maybe it is just local politics. Belusconi, the media mogul and boss of Italy, has a rather long position in Media… From a financial as well as a more Machiavellian viewpoint.

The Italian Internet access restrictions are a things I didn’t expect on forehand. The same accounts for the high prices of the marina’s and the weather for the last 3 weeks.

Next crew will arrive in about an hour. Meeting point will be the centre of Piazza San Marco. Is the place most close to  my marina. Did I tell you that already? O wait, one more picture in the serie “A Day at the Office”.

Did you see the Campanile through the sailing yachts? (big smile here)

Next post most likely from Croatia again. If weather permits I would like to go as fast as possible to Pula.
