If you've read my blog in the past you might remember that I've posted some pics of a trip I took in 2005. I went on a cruise and one of the stops was Venice. I love Venice and want to go back some day. Anyway, while I was there, I kept seeing these big red penguins (see picture) placed on some of the balconies of some of the hotels and other buildings. Honestly, ever since then I've wondered what the heck they were all about.
Well, the strangest thing happened today. I was visiting a favorite photo blog called Paris Daily Photo, and wahl-la, mystery solved. An Italian artist group called "The Cracking Art Group" makes huge plastic animals, exhibits them and then recycles them when they are done. Their penguins were in Venice when I was there! I am so excited to finally know why there were big red penguins everywhere. Well, I still don't know why they were there, but at least I know who put them there!
Have a great Saturday and don't forget to drink your water!
