The picture-postcard-perfect town/island of Burano.  Famous for hand-made lace  -  and delicious fresh seafood!
Here, our friend Ann
Gaddis is being loaded
onto a

hospital after an "extreme

broke her leg -- in three
places -- after stepping off

Emergency care in Venice
was excellent - and FREE!
She was returned directly

cast and crutches in a
matter of a hours. Most
Efficient Italian nautical first-responders in action.  We were impressed!
