Low bridge, lower air draft, refrigeration box on the cargo area, hand cart loaded with boxes . . . that’s how your food and drink must be delivered in Venice. Notice in white letters forward on the reefer box . . . “order and delivery” in Italian.

Here are two more such cold delivery boats.

As to the green groceries . . . you pick what you want from the shelves of this boat.  Bumboats they’d be in some places.  Parlevinkers in other places.  I’m not sure what they call the boats at floating markets on the Mekong, or what the Italian word for these is . . . .

 

Then there are the water buses and taxis.

 

And if I’m not mistaken, this is the dock that provides transport between the Marco Polo Airport and  town.  Note the luggage.  Also, note the location of the radar.

 

And where there’s people, law enforcement is needed as well. The photo below comes thanks to Tommy Bryceland.

And I truly need to plan a trip to Venice, along with lots of other places.
