Food Allergies at Venice Carnivale

As we stepped off the train in Venice, the energy and excitement of the day consumed us. My friends and I had decided to spend the day checking out the festivities for Carnivale. We had no idea what to anticipate!

There were costumes, masks, face painting, and of course food. I have now been to Venice many times, so I know that it is difficult to find food there that I can easily eat, especially reasonably priced food. I packed my bag with lunch and snacks for the day.

As we were standing in the crowd, watching all the festivities, I saw a person dressed as a peanut! Of course, I had to take a picture. I am not sure what the “S” stands for. My guess is “Super Peanut,” but I am not sure how Italian that is! :) Anyone have any ideas?

I wanted to share this because I was first of all surprised by the costume but mostly because I think it is important to realize that no matter where I am, I never know what I will come across. This means that no matter where I should always be prepared and aware, but that I also know how to keep myself safe. I can point to the woman in the peanut costume and take a picture, but I certainly wouldn’t go over and shake her hand.
