Venice, Flooded; Espresso Still Flows

Following rain and high tide, Venice, Italy, has received the worst flooding, or acqua alta (high water) in many years, reaching up to almost 5 feet on Sunday. But the people are still out there, swimming, kayaking and trekking around Piazza San Marco. Apparently, two-thirds of Venice was left under water.
