While trudging around Burano, after visiting Torcello, I saw something I’d never noticed before. It took me a few tries to get close to it; I kept hitting dead-ends, or finding myself further away from it. (Doesn’t that sound rather like Venice?)
Here’s what I had noticed over the rooftops.
Finally, success! But what is this interesting structure?
Someone poked his head out of a door, and before he could escape, I’d stopped him and asked what it was. He confirmed what I had thought it might be, a water tower. (Some of you already knew that, didn’t you?)
See if you can find it, next time you’re on Burano. And, do you have interesting water towers in your part of the world? I’ve seen some knockouts (on TV) in England. Have any of you ever been inside a water tower?
