Affordable Europe

Finally New York intellectuals talk about how to go around Europe on a budget, so look forward to more American tourists in our favorite back yard: Venice.
(ok, yes, that came off a bit snobby, but what the hey — i’m an american, i can say that)
New York Times: Affordable Europe
Anyone up for writing the Venice guide to avoiding tourist traps? I challenge you!!
Note: this article was mentioned to me 4 times since its publication, though I have a feeling we all know a tad bit more about Venice than the author (what 40 euros for a pizza meal? you’re joking!), it is still well worth a read.
