Florence

Florence is one of my favorite places in Italy.  It is really beautiful.  We left our hotel in Montecatini and after about 40 minutes we arrived.  We were given several hours on our own to find lunch a look around.  David and I stopped for lunch at an outdoor restaurant.  I sat down and was trying to take my camera off when I found that my hair was stuck on the button on the back of my shirt.  David started trying to get it out.  Next thing I know our waiter comes over and starts making the motion of scissors with his fingers.  I am going no, no! Then a waitress comes over and is trying to help David.  David finally gets it out and everyone cheers him. I did get my pizza in Florence.

After our free time we went on the walking tour with our local guide.  I do enjoy these because they tell you things that you don’t read in tour books.  It was very interesting to see the marks that were on the buildings to show the flood lines.  Some of them were 6 feet up in the main square.  This still happens in modern times. Also, on the first Sunday of every month is “Sunday at the Museum” and there are no entrance fees so the lines are long.

David is at the Accademia Museum but the lines were so long we did not go in.  The photo that I have included is a replica of David.  I have seen the real one before on one of my other trips over here.  Besides I have my own David.
