6. Venice (cont'd)The last full day in Venice, the Ishikawas woke up to a flood. They had seen stockpiled tables around the city before, and thought they were for occasional markets, but no, they were for Venetians to walk on above their flooded city.
A reminder to see Venice while you can. As the oceans rise, the enchanting city will disappear, and we'll all be much poorer for its loss.
