If you thought everyone stared at you in Venezia, Caldogne is something else. The citizens there watch you closely for what could be in your hands, pockets, under your legs, protruding from your inner coat pockets, and whatnot.

I do believe I found a pattern, as it had to do with gangs hanging on the sidelines with their own blue ribbons tied around their arm. There is no doubt that it was a sign of allegiance to some cause. The only thing I could be thankful for was that they left me to my own whims instead of intimidating me like they did with the more foppish citizens roaming the streets.
