Canal Work

I was out getting a bit of exercise for my knee and came across some canal work. Actually, I think they were fixing the side of building but it was so close to the canal that they had to drain it in order to complete the work. I am still fascinated at this ecosystem they call Venice.

From the pictures, hopefully you can see how much water was drained out and really how shallow the canals are in general. I dont think anyone could drown in them but rather they would probably die from the putrid mess they are sloshing around in!

Interesting how they support the building when they are fixing the hole. Do they remove the mud from the canal while the water is drained. Really interesting post.
