Draining the “Coffee makers lane”

                                                                                                                                                                           Our Venetian correspondent is at it again!

As you have seen in previous posts, Holy S – – T ! A Gondoliers impression and The latest sewer notes and history of Venice, Gio the Venetian Gondolier knows how much our readers love to see how waste water and sewer is moved around Venice.

Hey mate!
I’m so proud to be on the site that I decided to send you more stuff about Venice. Here is first of all a picture of my lane ” calle del Caffettier” ( the coffee maker lane) while a draining is on the go.

As you see on the first pic our local plumber has the drain hose on the left side of the lane with all the pipe going over the bridge.

Then you see how the pipe goes to the canal where the drain boat is waiting with the plumbers mate.

Then a picture of our proud fire patrol just after the draining of a boat that sunk because the owner did not drain the rain out…. shame!

That is all my friend.

See the statue of our Lady on the top of the wall near my house? Isn’t it a corner of paradise?
