If only Kanye West and Kim Kardashian could stop by for a photo op and some concert tickets, the waters would magically recede.

I guess we can always hope...

Nice, Will.

And I think what people romanticize, but don't realize, is the lack of cars. It took me a few days to realize that there weren't any.

Agua Alta happens once or twice a year. it gets worse when there is a storm at the other end of the Adriatic Sea. Global climate change at your door step, look out New York Miami you are next.

If you have ever been to Venice it is wonderful but most buildings abandon the ground floor this space serves as storage and or a boat garage. Some of the churches and museums are actually a few feet up on a plinth of steps but the older ones and the plazas and many shops are not protected. In piazza St Marko the shops have built in slots in the colonnade where heavy boards are wedged in to act as a temporary levy system.
