Scenic Sunday: Murano

When we were in Venice, we had the opportunity to visit the charming island of Murano. Bought the requisite glass animals, of course, but we especially enjoyed walking around the serene little town, far away from the crowds and the noise.

The rooftops of Jaen

I took these photos from the medieval converted fortress at the top of the hill that dominates picturesque Jaen, in Spain. The town looked much bigger from up there, ironically, though you can see how far up we were. The house in the last shot, which I really like, is visible among the trees in the forefront of the first picture.
