While travel is hitting a record low in a devastated Italy, its canals are being taken over by surprisingly jolly visitors. Beautiful white swans were captured parading the now crystal-clear waters of the city. Moreover, what initially seemed like a viral hoax, turned out to be true: dolphins playing in the Venice canals.
Venice hasn’t seen clear canal water in a very long time. Dolphins showing up too. Nature just hit the reset button on us pic.twitter.com/RzqOq8ftCj

Socializing can take many forms and these white swans were happy to exchange a few greetings. Not sure they miss the bohemian gondolas passing by:

Chances are all of us who have once visited Venice miss its atmosphere and preserved beauty. But let’s take a moment and welcome these lovely new inhabitants without instantly thinking that we are witnessing a dystopian scenario. Stay positive and stay safe, everyone!
