This young man had strung a rope between one of the Palazzo's and a street lamp on the canal side. At first we thought he was just going to joke around, and he wouldn't attempt to tightrope, but sure enough, he did it! He did a hilarious performance as he walked across this rope, I only wished I had my video camera with me. Luckily I had my little digital with me and was able to snap a few shots.
He kept the growing crowd entertained as he walked, and clowned around, all the way across the tightrope.
Then he turned around and tightroped back to the other side, grabbed onto the Palazzo, and climbed up onto the balcony. Can you just imagine what the people inside that apartment must have thought when they saw him peering into their windows!!!
