wow, that is crazy. those poor shop owners. thanks for sharing.
and to think I was standing right there only 3 months ago. I wonder how the shops keep the water out.
that is so crazy! and ljt, the shops actually *don't* keep water out -- some of the photos in the boston globe show the shopkeeper sitting on tables so their feet don't get wet!
all I can think of is wonderful Cafe Florian all wet!!!
that is crazy!! what a shame...
Venice! I've been there 5 times - can't get enough of it - it's a real shame nothing is being done to stop the water rising/city sinking.Great piccies though!
Oh dear : / I do hope it doesn't sink before I can visit.
Not a good city for shoe lovers, that's for sure.
There is something so strange and fascinating about seeing photos of cities under water. Sad sad sad.
Hard to believe, isn't it?!
that is crazy and sad. I have been there and I loved the experience but I'm not sure I would go back!
Those pictures are incredible! I hope it is not a sign of things to come. The city still looks beautiful even under these terrible circumstances. Wishing them much sunshine to dry their homes & shops, & historical buildings!
oh no, this is too sad. I spent the summer in Italy two years ago and Venice quickly became my favorite city. I hope everyone is coping well...
that first photo is unbelieveable!!! very sad, venice is so beautiful
it's just so nuts -- i can't even imagine what they're going through
I hadn't heard about this! So sad, but very intriguing pics.
I went to school in Amsterdam with the girl in the top photo! She was visiting Venice during the flood and her picture was snapped. I hope some of the governments plans will be able to save this beautiful city from sinking.
I prefer Venice whithout turists, I prefer Venice whith wather
I really appreciate your thoughts and ideas, thanks for reading!
