Caution - Student Driver

You know how you feel when you see those words on the back of a car traveling along Ka'ahumanu Avenue? Well, imagine being on a vaporetto in the middle of the Grand Canal where there are no lanes, no rules, no fear. We had that experience coming back from Murano earlier in the week. At first, it was a little disconcerting - the guy needed two, three, four tries to pull into the first couple of stops. But he finally got into his groove and by the time we reached Dorsoduro, he was able to make it in one go. I must say everyone, Venetians especially, was very forgiving and sympathetic - hey, the only way to learn is to do it, right? - and cheered for him when he finally got it down. Bravo!
