LAUNDRY DELIVERY IN VENICE




VENISE OU COMMENT LIVRER LE LINGE?


As we were having a leasurely lunch by a small canal in Venice one day, we noticed a fit young man piling up large plastic bags filled to the brim with something on the other side on the "sidewalk". After a while he stopped so as to keep watch on the increasing pile as other men with wheel carts came, added on to it and went. Finally, with the help of a strong acolyte, he started throwing bags from a boat that had just arrived along side, onto the "sidewalk" as it were and replacing them with the growing pile we had been watching. It all turned out to be hotel laundry. Dirty laundry was being dropped off and clean laundry was being picked up for delivery further down a canal or another. 
So that's how they do it? of course! How else? 

In Venice you are witness to unimaginable beauty...but you also encounter the very mundane. Like everywhere else. Just a little differently.

au revoir.
