You wouldn’t think there’d be anything to say about wheels in Venice, right?
Unfortunately I don’t have a photo of the most unusual thing I saw in December because it happened too quickly. But one afternoon in Cannaregio, I almost collided with a man riding a unicycle! Seeing a unicyclist is fairly unusual anywhere in the world, but especially in Venice. And he wasn’t on a straight and wide fondamenta or strada, he was riding in a very twisty-turny and narrow part of town. He was an older man, very well-dressed with a huge handlebar mustache, and he was moving along quite fast - I was impressed by his skill. I told my friend Cristiano about it, and he laughed and said, “Oh yes, I’ve seen him too. He does that all the time.”
And I don’t even know what to say about this sight below except that I laughed out loud when I saw it parked and chained on a calle outside a home in Santa Croce. What's the story here?! I guess if you want to ride a bike outdoors in Venice, this is another way to do it.
