We made it to our hotel in Florence despite a bus strike
that occured earlier today and caused crazy delays at the train station.
But one of the things italians are known for, i think, are their strikes.
It just wouldn't have been authentic Italy without some form of strike occuring.
The Gelato is fabulous, the blackberry variety is pictured above.
We found a few marble statues in a square.
Charlie made friends with Americo who is credited for mapping the Americas.
Hopefully we can find the original David somewhere in the city.
Tomorrow we're going to take a quick day trip to Pisa
to see the tower.
Now it's time for a quick rest before another busy day starts.
