>PS--For those of you who have been to Venice: how courteous are the pedestrians towards large loads on wheels, like dollies or pallet jacks? Do they tend to ignore them? Or let them through?
One of the many reasons that I suspect that the porters of
Venice whistle while they work is to let people know they
are coming. People are generally pretty decent about it,
as they are about almost everything in Venice.
