Happy 5th of May - Mexico's Independence Day.
In some parts of the world it's a reverent holiday, in others it's a real good excuse to enjoy all the good food and drinks that Mexico's famous for. In the eyes of a gondolier, both are noble pursuits.
So today I would like to salute all the gondoliers I know who either are Mexican, or celebrate like they are.
This seems like a good place to post a link back to the only Venice-built gondolas I know of in Mexico.
And for those of you who are looking for something to google, I have one word:
They're not gondolas by Venetian standards, but to anyone who rows a gondola, they are interesting.
Happy Cinco de Mayo amigos.
Viva la gondola!
