It is wonderful to see a place so different from what I am used to. The moisture in the air felt different. Remember I am living in a desert and am used to very dry conditions.
I loved seeing the women making lace in Burano...they do needle lace which is different than my bobbin lace, but there was also bobbin lace shown and being done. The needle lace that I have done was very small and an Irish method instead of the very fine and beautiful work that I saw being done.
I also liked the face that here they drove boats instead of cars. There were police boats, ambulance boats, junky truck looking boats and souped up teen age boats. I even saw a boat with a couple of teen age boys that had furry dice hanging from the windshield...just like teenage boys in cars!
