Che Bella Italia

Burano, Italy. A small island town near Venice. I chose this picture because it is one of the most beautiful pictures I took of one of the most beautiful places I went in Italy, where I studied this past semester. The vibrance of the houses combined with the tranquility of the water is a good metaphor for Italy, where the people are very animated and colorful like the houses, but the society and the day is very leisurely and calm, like the water. To this day Burano remains one of the most beautiful places I have ever been in my life and I am so thankful to have had the opportunity to visit while I was abroad.
