The Lone Gondalierman of Venice
Submitted: Jul 14, '09
Great Travel Moment
We saw this young man standing away from the huge gathering of professional Gondelierman. When we approached him, he told us in his not so perfect English that he was the best. He gave us an incredible 2 hour tour of all the backwater streets of beautiful Venice. He proudlly pointed out the home of Cassanova and Marco Polo, fellow Venitians. When the wonderful sunset ride was over, he told us that we were his first customer ever, and that today was his first day on the job. He said he had been traning and practicing for months to comondere the beautiful gondalier properly. He gave it his all, and he WAS the best!
