Photo Blog Entry 2: Glass, Lace and Risotto

Today, we went on an island hopping trip through the islands in the veneto. The cemetery in San Michele was serene and beautiful. The visit to Murano was incredible, the glass pieces they make are some of the most beautiful works of art in the world. Burano is well known for their laces and the brightly coloured homes.
