From the Passenger's Perspective

It's easy to get used to things from only one point of view.
In fact it seems that the more time a gondolier spends on the back of the boat, the less in-touch they are with what things look like from the passenger's seat.

For this reason, I tell my gondoliers to take a moment after they've set their boat up, and simply sit in the boat - look at things from the passenger's perspective.
Suddenly all those crumbs, wrappers, and straps from life jackets come into view.  What you thought was a perfect presentation...needs to be dialed in just a little bit more, and that little bit can make all the difference.
