Just a quick post to wish gondolier Robert Dula a happy birthday.
Roberto, (seen above in a photo I shamelessly stole from his Facebook page) has been known by many other names - "Hurricane Bob" is my favorite. Roberto has survived more natural disasters than any gondolier I know.
He exemplifies dedication and tenacity. So take your hats off for Mr. Dula.
Oh, and yes, that's Vanna White in the photo.
I'm not sure how he got it, but I'm sure there's an interesting story.
Happy birthday "Hurricane Bob!"
