Acqua Alta A Venezia

Venice is flooding right now, and while acqua alta (high water) is a regular occurrence in this most unique city built on sandbanks, this particular flood is the worst in at least 20 years. There's a great photo collection from this latest calamity at The Big Picture, which highlights the laid back attitude of the citizens who have learned to take it all in stride and go on with their daily routines. I found these next couple of pics to be particularly comical:

A group of men having an aperitivo in waders.

A flooded pastry shop, open for business as usual.

Check out the entire collection at The Big Picture.
