  • Costumes and Paradise Galor

    Posted by Andy Steves on September 15, 2010.

                In St. Mark’s Square there were all sorts of characters. Again, this is an example of people taking a hobby a bit too seriously.

    The next night I did it all over again, but this time with a pack of Brazilians in a five-story club. The Chileans had to catch a flight to somewhere else early that morning.
