Open Thread for July 11
"I was recently lucky enough to travel to Europe, and I wanted to share some photos for the OT.
I took the second picture from a gondola in Venice, Italy. There are 405 licensed gondoliers who give rides on the city's 150 canals. To receive a license, a gondolier must take a course to learn the city's history, and must speak two languages other than Italian. Each gondolier has his own boat, which costs about €35,000 ($45,000)." - cellogirl96
