Happy Mardi Gras


Or Happy Carnival in Venice! When I studied abroad in Rome, we were in Venice leading up to Carnival so we got to see all the people dressed up in their fancy masks, and they really go all out - so cool!

unrelated to Carnival, just me with a pigeon in St. Mark's Square

oh my goodness, you are seriously so brave holding that pigeon! is it weird that i'm actually scared of birds? i think it's because a momma duck chased me when i was little.
