Venice

The city of canals, Venice is an amazing place. Unfortunately, parts of it appear to be sinking into the sea. This city is basically kept alive by the tourist industry as it has no real industry other than that. It is also largely a walking city. There are no cars, and many of the streets are very narrow. The famous gondolas pass for public transportation, but these days they are mostly used to give rides to tourists. There are water taxis along the Grand Canal, which are kind of like buses in most other towns. An interesting place. Please enjoy the pictures. I will post some more of Venice in a few days.
