I am an Italian husband of a Filipina and one of the most famous tourist spots here in Italy, the city of Venice, is flooded.
Floods happen each year in Venice but the situation is getting worse and worse.
Venice is sinking and, according to recent studies, it will be underwater by 2100.
Does it mean to say that it will no longer be possible for tourists to visit Venice?
Well, Filipinos have come up with an interesting alternative: the Gran Canal Shopping Mall in Taguig that features canals and gondolas!
Venice is the city of canals so is Manila, the city of maraming mga kanal (at daga sa kanal….just like in Venice).
There is also plenty of kanal in the province and there is one running through my wife’s house compound in Bulacan.
Because the Philippines is the country of kanal, it stands to reason that only Filipinos could have created an alternative to the sinking city of Venice, should it completely go underwater….
