Thanks פֿאַרבלאָנדזשעט.
I've told him to keep his phone hidden and not use it at all if he doesn't need to, and to take a minimal amount of money and definitely to come home before dark.
Good advice also about water, whistle and litter.

Well he went and he came back - all in one piece and with all his possessions. He had a great time, apparently :D

Pleased to hear it. I remember there being a very nice atmosphere albeit it is years since I went. I took a good camera once, a Nikon SLR, which I thought was absolutely fine apart from repeatedly being warned by people nearby that it was a bit risky. I left it at home for subsequent years.

why shouldn't you buy a whistle at the Carnival?

Because the locals hate the sound of hundreds of whistles being blown.

I have to say I hate the whistle-blowing thing. It happens a lot at Pride as well and NTC finds it really distressing.
As far as I know NOS did not engage on any whistle-blowing :)

Whistle etiquette
I never thought of that

Where in Don't Look Now is the creepy sisters' laughing scene?

Somewhere near the beginning, when we're trying to join the dots. I never did understand the scene you mention though, apart from it adding to the general sense of foreboding.

Yup got it.  It's supposed to be are they charlatans or is it creepy joy, no?

^Belatedly, yes, I expect you're right but I suppose as the film steers us to side with the apparently more rational husband, we don't want to accept the cackling sisters as an additional clue suggesting we're wrong. I can't remember the sequence as it's so long since I've seen the film so I don't know if the scene you mention, which I think is part of a longer one when the camera goes around their room picking out bits and pieces, photos, ornaments, etc, (vaguely remember it being pale, white, golds, sunny, innocent, accompanied by atmospheric music suggesting the opposite) whether that precedes or follows the one on the canal of his burial gondola, which he 'sees'.

My NRQ: is it odd to not mind my name not being included in a programme for a concert that I took part in? I really don't mind at all.

It's very short, dislocated, and precedes his funeral I think.   It's just before the wife goes to see them for the first sťance.
