S. Moisè - The Phone Guy

Along with rowing, fishing for customers, and enjoying good wine, there's one other thing Venetian gondoliers have an affinity for - talking on the phone. There's one in the above photo.

At first it looks like he's just resting his chin on his hand. It sure looks that way in this shot of the indietro rower.
But no, he's definitely on the phone.
He kind of looks like Paul Giamatti too.
I once heard a statement that Italians talk more on their cellphones than any other country.
I don't know how accurate that statement was, but this guy certainly did his part to support the theory.
He was on the phone the whole time I was there.
