The rowing looks like such fun to watch! I also get a kick out of the cartoon characters in the background of the second image.

It must be such fun, to row and to watch.

Hard boiled egg? Well, the name sounds better in Italian.

Dianne - Venice is a quarter of Livorno, called 'Venezia' because it has a few canals and some bridges.

Dina - The funny and nicely sounding nickname comes obviously from their colors: white and yellow. It was derisive at first, then they adopted it.
