When we travel, Mr. Wild Dingo focuses on history and ancient sites. I focus on landscape, culture, city vibe, pretty things and cuisine. So other than my gluttonous indulgence in Italian cuisine, I had only one other mission going to Venice: glass. And lots of it.
So Mr. Wild Dingo took pictures of statues.
I took pictures of colorful gondolas.
Mr. Wild Dingo took pictures of architecture.
I took pictures of quiet lagoon alleys reflecting the buildings in its street.
And of tourists flocking with the St. Mark's pigeons.
And this array of limincello and grappa bottles. A three for one: pretty, glass and cuisine!
We visited Murano and saw some glass blowing. And Mr. Wild Dingo took pictures the guys making a plate and the end of a hot poker with the start of a new glass project.
I took a picture of this glass mosaic laughing horse. I have no idea how it fits into either of our travel interests. Had this been a Husky or a Formosan dog, our pocket books would be in serious trouble.
Still, we went home a few Euro's lighter.
