Welcome to Just One Person From Around the World!
I have stopped watching the news….I have dropped all social media, except for my blog, which I try to keep to positive vibes…. there are a lot of folks in the world, who are everyday folks, just trying to provide food and shelter and love……….they are trying to make a living…….keep their kids educated and basically just take care of their families, without an agenda. Me too. I think there is more of us…. Just trying to live our lives….. So, I would like to take the time to focus on one person a week to bring us together, to celebrate ordinary folks.
Feel free to join Just One Person From Around the World by creating your own post and then share your link in the comments! Also, add the tag JUST ONE PERSON FROM AROUND THE WORLD to your post so it is easier for me to find! Thank You!
Today, we are in Venice, Italy! Water, water everywhere! First, the big canal look……….
The gondolas are moored in the early morning hours!
But, soon they are full of tourists and neighbors making they way through the canals! There can be traffic jams!
It is quieter on the inner canals!
Up close and personal in the gondola!
On the inner, inner canals, it still looks too early for a gondola ride!
But. what do we see here? The gondolas and small boats are delivering produce to the restaurants and shops……..and the market!
This is the way out to the gondola from our hotel…….The door is a half-door and you must bend down, sit on the ledge and then jump into the gondola! Not easy for us old folks, but quite the adventure!
From other doors and I can say they look much larger……… the bigger boats pick up the dirty laundry and the garbage! So these are my men for today! Just keepin’ on workin!’
I know some of the restrictions are less severe in some parts of the world now, and some are not…….so let’s keep on remembering, what we can do to keep us all sane! Life goes on!
