Giudecca

   Italy, Venice
 
 

Our apartment was on the only street in Giudecca, a street that is waterside and lined with useful businesses. Cafes, a butcher, the post office and bank, a well-stocked grocer, a hardware store where I bought a couple of metal pitchers. No t-shirts, no masks, no refrigerator magnets. Not only does Giudecca have the stuff you need, the view's not bad, sunny day or grey.

Recycling pickup      
I like seeing how average every-day things are done. They seem to be picking up used pallets, so I'm guessing re-use or recycling of some sort.

Garbage is complex in Italy. We got a taste of it in the Sardinian cities and Venice does it, too. You put out a bag in the morning at the end of the block, and what goes in the bag varies by day. Different days for different types of recycling or garbage. So the collectors are out pretty much every day. (We also saw daily pickups in Merida, in the Yucatan, but recycling wasn't separated out.)
