As pregame to next month I spent four days in Venice, Italy. It was nice to have some sun and days to draw the city. The whole city is on water sort of and connected by canals and small ally ways. It was strange not to see any cars or bikes. I really loved all the old building that are falling apart and potentially sinking.

My favorite part of my trip was Burano, An island a bit away from Venice. It was full of brightly colored houses, canals and lace shops (that is their specialty). Oh and men in striped shirts steering boats are real. They even wear the hats (but maybe just for the sake of the tourist).
