To those of us who celebrate christmas:
Hah...I know a lot of us here are too old to make Christmas lists (not me, i'm 14...wow sometimes it DOES pay to be young) but what do you really want for Christmas?
1. MP3 player
2. 3 cds
3. Gift Certificate to a music store
4. Pool Table (you have to have those things on your list that you know you won't get but the hope of getting it is nice)
5. Flight Simulator 2002
6. A small fridge for my room (my mom will never let me have that!)

Don't forget to bring tons of money with you in Venice! I was there this summer, and it was expensive. 3,000 Lire for a Fanta! (That's like 2 bucks, and it's just a can, and it'll get more expensive.) Anyway, I loved the place, with all the canals and little shops along the way. My favorite place was the jail and the palace by the Basillica San Marco. Great place! If you see a hotel called Hotel Da Bruno, that's where I stayed, it was an awesome hotel! I remember my first day there, my dad's friend drove us to Venice from Croatia. I was on a boat in the canal, and I saw an Iberia MD-80 in the distance! I was surprised that the airport was this close to Venice! Anyway, have a great time, I'm sure I'll be back there in the Summer of 2002, as I visit Croatia every year!

Well see my mom went last year, fell in love with the place, and decided I had to go and see it. She has lived in Rome for 5 yrs, but said Venice was like a dream. We are staying near Piazza San Marco I know that. All I know is it will be FREEZING cold, but very pretty. It will hopefully be an enjoyable week
