Venetian Steam Punk

Two new friends on beautiful Burano,  Venice,  February 2017

A colourful note:  cornflower is a shade of medium-to-light blue that became a Crayola colour in 1949.

This colour name has a wide variety of uses.   The most surprising one for me is the German popular song “Kornblumenblau” which takes pleasure in celebrating drunkenness, blau apparently being German slang for “drunk” (not something I learned when I studied the language).

Needless to say, I enjoyed the wine in Venice but no blau-ness for me!

    1. Totally different! But it’s rude to take shots of them when they remove their masks (they have to do that to eat or drink) as they apply heavy makeup (usually black) around their eyes
