Venetians Hate This Calatrava Bridge
Yeah, I can't tell you how many people I talked to in Venice that just don't have a single good word to say about this somewhat famous (infamous?) bridge designed by Santiago Calatrava. It's pretty, yes, as you can see. But most of it is glass, and you walk on glass to get over. The glass isn't even see-through. It's just slippery as hell. And I can definitely see how it is slippery in the rain, but it must be a nightmare when it freezes. There's also countless stories of people losing control of themselves and tumbling over the side into the Venice canals!
