Little Venice my ass.

On a recent trip to London, I visited Little Venice. This isn’t merely a colourful, colloquial local name- it’s on the signposts. The only resemblance is water- the wrong colour, I should add.

Above is a handy comparative illustration to show the canny likeness to Amsterdam. I will concede though that renaming the area “Little Amsterdam” is unlikely to conjure images of leafy, idyllic middle-class waterways; but rather some orange clogs tattooed to the posterior of a tiny hooker smoking weed.
