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.


  1. Your smile shows in your eyes
    It's on such a pretty face
    Your smile comes straight from your heart
    It shows love,joy,happiness,and grace :)
    love you!

  2. For mild sore throats that accompany a cold or allergy, soothing hydrogen peroxide ranks up there as one of the best household remedies. It can stand alone or work side by side with traditional medicine to stifle that soreness. .
    stay well & take care of your beau :)
    Prayers for wellness are included in my note.
    I miss y'all!
    love you lots & lots,
