Lego Venice

The day we went to Venice it was raining so hard that I could not take good photos, and we spent most of the time in museums. Anyway, I have already written a guide to Venice here,
so no need for a new post except... well, call me proud mum, but I loved the fact that my kids got home and started making a Venice out of lego.

Here the gondola going through the Grand Canal, weeeeeee!

Did you know that Venice has been built on 118 small islands connected by 354 bridges? The things you learn when you have kids!

and to finish Max did an installation for the Venice Biennale :-)

  6. Yes, there is one on the road to Oxford, my kids went with their cousin in June and love it!

  7. Alessandra, great series of posts about writing a cookbook. I really admire anybody's dedication in putting one of those together.

    I also love this "lego" Venice - very clever.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and your lovely comment.
