Murano Glass


One of the highlights of our trip to Venice was the 45 minute water-bus ride to the island of Murano.  We arrived before the town woke up, but one tiny shop has it’s lights (and it’s furnace) fully ablaze.  We were the first customers of the day, and students – DISCOUNT! The shop keeper led us into the back of the store where a man was humbly making a glass duck.  Later, a tour group came to see some glass blowing, and she let us in again to see! So fascinating!
