The Colorful Island of Burano, Italy
The island of Burano, a 40 minute boat ride from Venice, is a beautiful place with an equally colorful history. Burano is an old fishing village, and the fishing traditions of Burano date back to Roman times. Fishing is not the only source of income for Burano. The art of lace making has played a large role in Burano’s history.
Legend has it that a betrothed fisherman out at sea was given a wedding veil by a siren, and when he gave it to his betrothed; everyone tried to replicate it with needlework. Burano lace became famous. King Louis XIV was said to be wearing a Burano lace collar for his coronation and Leonardo Da Vinci purchased a piece for the main altar of the Duomo di Milano.
But what makes Burano different from the rest of the surrounding islands, is its rainbow of houses. Though these houses are beautifully painted and look like artwork, the reason for their vivid colors is quite practical. Years ago, the fishermen painted their houses bright colors so when they were coming home in the fog, they knew whose house was whose. That said, the colors of these houses have been in families for centuries. And, if you want to change the color of your house, you have to send in a request to the government.
It looks like the new Wolverine movie trailer is in, too.
Well, The Wolf Of Wall Street trailer is finally out, and you can see Temple’s Marching Band around 1:30 for about 2 seconds.
Anonymous asked: do u do druGS
I drink from time to time. I do smoke/consume pot every now and then, but I’m trying to take a break from it for a bit until I can get a job. You know, just in case they give me a piss test. I also will smoke a cigar or my pipe here and there. I actually had an Electronic Cigar for a bit this year. Besides that, not really. I’ll sometimes take Adderall if I’m working on an extensive paper. I don’t really want to try anything else. Maybe Molly or Shrooms or something, but that probably won’t be for a bit.
