WNT Nov 18, 2010
After lunch today, the U.S. WNT took a short afternoon trip to Venice (under an hour away by train) and came away more than impressed by one of the most unique cities in the world. Made up of 118 seperate islands connected by 400 bridges, Venice has no cars of course, just canals. The team walk around the city for a bit, taking in the sites and sounds of the lengendary romantic locale before catching the train back in time for dinner. Despite the numerous shops selling delicious looking pizza, cookies and other sweet treats, the players abstained (although there were a few cups of coffee consumed) and had a nice supper back at the hotel.

No cars, no hybrids, no taxis...just boats
