What Color is Your Parachute?
Within minutes after docking in Venice, we were off on a small-boat excursion to the islands of Murano (glass) and Burano (lace), some 7 km away.Burano
is also known for its brightly-painted houses, which we saw just as the sun was setting."The colours of the houses follow a specific system originating from the golden age of its development; if someone wishes to paint their home, one must send a request to the government, who will respond by making notice of the certain colours permitted for that lot. This practice has resulted in the myriad of warm, pastelly colours that characterises the island today."
I sure did wish I had had my tripod with me!
