Okay, so Venice…

Rethinking Life

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAdmittedly it’s weird to be picked up from the airport by BOAT but there’s no other way to GET to Venice.  Everything is brought in by boat, including tourists.  The thing is, the population is dropping dramatically.  There are only about 55,000 – 60,000  people living in Venice.  Most of them live on the mainland and commute to work by boat.  It’s so expensive to live in Venice that people simply cannot afford to do so. It’s a wonderful place.  Garbage is picked up and brought, by boat, to an incinerator.  There is a a special island for burials.  It’s strange to be in a place where there are no cars at all…none.

More later…
