Cruise ships in Venice are a hot topic, triggered to new heights when one ran into the wharf. But how do you balance the demands of tourism in an essentially tourist city?

Plenty of activism with even Banksy weighing in. (Not my photo)

And the Banksy-like stencillers.

On the other hand, the graffiti war has largely been won in favour of the township cleanliness. However this Banksy is considered art therefore a tourist attraction so it is allowed to stay. A child refugee with a distress signal.

By the way this was in our hotel.  Is it real or a painting?

Anyway have a photo of some international ducks on the ferry. Frida Kahlo representing Mexico.

And it’s goodnight from Venice.
