A Colorful Island Named Burano

Houses
brightly colored
red,
maroon,
light blue,
white and
pink
reflected in the
green waters of
the canals.

This island Burano
north of Venice,
a home of tranquility
and calmness.
A venue for artists
and tourists.

Lace making with needles
made the island rich …
time consuming
and expensive.
But technology came
and tradition was lost.

Fishermen put up
fresh fish in traditional boats.
Let’s have a taste of
Burano cuisine.
Famous of which is
the “risotto de gò”.
Creamy and tasty
from broth of fresh goby.

Besides being known
for their quality
of service; let’s check
the kitchen, authentic like in
the days of old,
a “trattoria buranella”
(a tavern).
Preserving the fish
cuisine only where you
can still eat delicious
fresh fish.
