11/35.- Venice, another Gondola


Here you can see a Gondola waiting for tourists.

The global warming affects all the world, but in Venice its effects are particulary evident. Due to its location by the sea, periodic floods swamp parts of the city. It is what locals call ‘Acque Alte’ (Usually from November to April). There have always been high tides in Venice, but lately they are more frequent and their effects more visible.

Even San Marco Square is sometimes under three feet of water for two or three hours.
