Little addendum to last week's item re Dixon Jones' water taxi from Venice airport to San Marco. Running desperately late for the return flight, they only made it by offering the taxi driver a massive tip to break the speed limit.

Something he did only after radioing around all the other taxi drivers to see if there were any police on the route.The journey was described as hair-raising.
