On my riverboat trip on the amazon, our effervescent naturalist guide told us, while pointing out a Roadside hawk (that’s their name) that for the amazonia, the river and its tributaries comprise the ‘roads’. I am sure people in Venice think that about their canals.
I think a lot of the character of cities lives in the way the streets are designed, the older the city the more the streets fight to retain its history and sometimes win. The modes of transport on these streets, also tell us the character of the people that make the place. This is an ongoing series, like most of my other projects except the ‘Blooms in blue’, I hope to add something distinctive about Panama city, old Delhi, New Orleans and Puerto Rico lane to this series..
