words and pics about living and raising a child in Venice
Those look so much more "quality" than the white ones, don't they? Ah well, all my travelling round Venice is always via vaporetti....or on foot.
The varnish job on most or maybe all of the all-wood taxis, Ella, is really quite amazing. A few times I've gone through the cantiere--or one of them--in which the work is done, but I've never thought to ask how much it costs to have it refinished what must be as often as once a year. And, yes, I much prefer them to the white ones, though, like you, neither version are my mode of transportation.
