Listening to the football game, streamed live to his smartphone, as he heads out...
Picturit: Maybe so, maybe his mom telling him not to be home late for dinner...
No escape from technology anywhere, Astrid.
Picturit: I know, the thing that bothered me, and I did not get a good shot of it for I was in a waterbus passing him, he had people in the boat... at €80...
A modern Gondola guy! Well caught, Astrid!
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth. He sure is modern and there were only a few that had the famous hat.... and no singing...
We saw this a lot, didn't we, Astrid! It does make you wonder what near misses there have been on the Grand Canal because of people not really paying attention! Good job of capturing this fella.
Picturit: I can imagine that in high season you almost need a life-jacket to survive.. Already I often wondered when I saw old geezers rowing from one end to the other and line 4.1 waterbus was in a hurry...... Thank you as always. Ginnie.

Obviously no laws against propelling with mobile phones on the canals
Picturit: Not yet and I think they assume that 'everybody' knows how to swim wink

I wonder if this is an UBER gondola Astrid?
Picturit: I think so yes.... HA,
A far cry from Gilbert and Sullivan. Well spotted LAdy P
Picturit: Thank you, Bill... I tried to follow this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhaEjgnmy3c
We saw one like this taking passengers Astrid. He clearly had no intention of singing.
Picturit: Not today no..and he also left his hat at home.... where is the romance, Chad...
"Could you pick up a loaf of bread on the way home?"
Picturit: Oh yes.... and don't forget the spaghetti..... smile
Is there anybody who doesn't have a mobile with them at all times, apart from me of course! Good picture Astrid.
Picturit: .....and me..... if it is urgent, they will call again... Thank you kindly, Brian.
he must have a stupendous left arm to be rowing that gondola while on the phone, Astrid.
Picturit: Can you believe this, you pay big bucks to be able to be in this boat and he is on the phone... I bet they all are very strong, we met one of the two ladies-gondolas from Venice, she is quite nice and strong but it does not show.
Oh...I hate that cell phones are ruining this too!
Picturit: Where is romance when you need it.... I agree with you, Robin.
he is slacking off Astrid... no gondolier's hat and a cell phone to his year....petersmile
Picturit: I was so surprised there were almost NO hats... and they were not all clothed in the so famous outfit. Where does the romance go, is it all money then, where is the pride of the trade......???

Now, that is multi-tasking!
Picturit: And...(don't hit me) rare for a man....I was surprised that almost no obe had the so famous outfit, we did meet with one of the two ladies Gondolas and she was wearing a hat smile....were is the romance of the profession??
But is was fun to watch.
