A huge gelato banana split with cookies for the Teen, at the ancient Gelateria Biolin in San Stefano.
Boats on a canal in Murano.
Dry paint pigments at an art supplies store.
The arch of a pedestrian bridge over one of the small side canals.
My favorite sign of the trip “I open some time”… and bizarrely, I understood it. :)
The most amazing prosciutto e melone, with the prosciutto machine sliced to an incredible paper thin width!
A junk or used goods salesman, set up on his sailboat and on the banks of a canal. He had odds and ends of offer from paintings to furniture, glass lampshades, cutlery, china, etc.
Wonderful little gnocchi, in a cream sauce punctuated with large chunks of salty prosciutto. It was served on a massive parmesan crisp or basket. Superb, but a salt attack in the making!
Window shopping for yet another Panama hat at Borsalino.
A grocery and fruitstand acquired dinner enjoyed on the floor of our hotel room. Tired at the end of one day… the Teen asked that we eat in, so we bought several salads, some prosciutto, bread, apples, etc. and had a picnic in our hotel room!
More gelato, this time from GROM, which serves very good gelato…
And finally, some bottles of good balsamic vinegar on display at a food store. Some of the better bottles went upwards of Euro 50 per small bottle or PHP3,500++, ouch! But they are like balsamic nectar/honey and once you’ve tasted the really good stuff, the grocery version pales in comparison.
