Water. Water everywhere.

posted on: Samstag, 1. Februar 2014

When you open your Facebook front page and a friend of yours just posted "There are people kayaking by my window" you know that the hightide in Venice has reached a new level. I had heard about the city being flooded before, but I certainly did not imagine it to be like this - including late night wading through alleys turned into lakes so dark you cannot even see the ground & soaking wet feet because the water is too high for your rubber boots. For the Venetians it is not a big deal though and sometimes the men are even so nice to piggyback unprepared tourists to the next scaffold or dry Vaporetto station. 

Usually I will leave all my important belongings at home, because everything is soaked within a few minutes. On a day it was not too bad I dared to take my camera to snap a few photos. 

Times are a little crazy right now with university starting on Monday, so bear with me until I find my mojo again. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend, may it be sunny or snowy or, well, as wet as it is here!
