Before our walk over to the Rialto Bridge we decided to take a quick break at our hotel patio with a little snack. We made some sandwiches with bread prosciutto, and cheese we had purchased in Rome. It was nice a to have a little mini fridge in just about every hotel we stayed in, so we could keep food items longer.

We then headed over to the bridge , did a little bit of shopping since the bridge is lined with souvenir shops.

We again referred to our Rick Steve's guidebook for a place to eat dinner. Unfortunately the restaurant was not open until 7:30pm for dinner so we found a cafe to kill some time, which consisted of mainly people watching. I have never seen some many grown men wearing line green pants in my entire life as I did while sitting at this cafe.

While at the cafe we heard a crowd of people in the distance clapping and signing. As the crowd got closer we noticed that this was part of a jewish celebration of sorts. They had a young boy of maybe 5 years old standing on this persons shoulders, who were surrounded by a group of men and adolescent boys chanting, clapping ans signing joyously as they paraded down the streets. We were both a little bewildered as to what this parade of singing men was all about. I could not find anything about this online so I am not sure why they were engaged in such a parade.
