Rome Center Weekend Trips: 1970/71 - James F Palka

October 9th-11th, 1970 / Venice trip: View of St. Mark's from our pensioni. I found myself in a suite composed of three small rooms with several beds and several guys. It was shabby and dark, with mattresses that sank so deep from bodyweight, I later characterized that first night as “sleeping in a hot dog bun.”
