Barcelona, a photo a day

Watery Wednesday


This is Venice, Italy, last winter. High tide on Piazza di San Marco. This lady seemed to enjoy it! The other one not so much.

Ésta es Venecia, Italia, el invierno pasado. Alta marea en la Piazza di San Marco. ¡Esta señora parecía gozar de él! La otra no tanto.

Maree haute sur la place Saint Marc a Venise, l’hiver dernier. Une des dames a l’air de bien s’amuser, l’autre pas trop. Eh oui, ca mouille et c’est froid, Madame.

Marea alta sulla Piazza di San Marco, Venezia. Una delle signore sembra contentissima, l’altra no.
Hochwasser auf der Piazza di San Marco in Venedig. Die erste Dame findet das alles sehr lustig, die andere scheint nasse Fuesse zu haben.

Esta é Veneza, Italy, no inverno passado. Maré elevada em Praça di San Marco. Esta senhora pareceu apreciá-la! Outra não tanto.

Αυτό είναι Βενετία, Ιταλία, τον περασμένο χειμώνα. Υψηλή παλίρροια στο τετράγωνο σημαδιών Αγίου. Αυτή η κυρία φάνηκε να τον απολαμβάνει! Άλλο το ένα όχι τόσο μεγάλο μέρος.

  6. No, the tide does not cover the square all the time. It goes up and down. And no, there are no ponds, it is sea coming in and covering half of the town in up to 50cm to a meter of water. The municipality of Venice installs then wooden gangways. This usually happens mostly during winter. And it's great fun!

  10. Does the tide always cover the plaza? I would think that would destroy the tiles…
    At first, I thought it was just a heavy rain causing some flooding!

  14. I was once on a tour of the Amalfi Coast, Capri and Rome with an Italian tour guide who was from Rome. We asked if he tells his mother when his tours were in Rome. He said that he does not because he does not want his mother to come to the hotel and brag about her son, the tour director.

    He said that one time he was in Rome and called his mother. She asked where he was. He said that he was leading a tour in Venice and he had a few moments to call her from St. Mark's Square while his tour group was inside the Doge's Palace. She asked if he was in St. Mark's Square at that very moment, and he said “Yes.”

    She replied, “I am watching St. Mark's Square on TV right now, and it is under water.”
