It's the Festa di San Martin in Venice today. I drew the San Martin cookie that I bought at Majer before we ate it at lunch. It was a disappointment...last year's, bought somewhere on the Strada Nuova, was better.
I drew last year's cookie too. I actually drew it in England, because I had brought it to owlfish
. If you do a tag search on San Martin, you can compare it to this year's version.
This afternoon, Campo San Giacomo had activities for children, including the same puppet theater company that performs in dialect (they were here at Carnevale too). I include photos of the puppets and the enraptured children.
