Ole Flat Hippies Do Italy

The Church Palace was a lot of fun. The food was good and the drink was better. We rode a lion and took a selfie in front of artwork called selfie.  The bed was nice too.

 

These people that brought us along with them are really cool.  They took us everywhere.  We got to go to the Vatican Museum.

We had some great pasta for dinner.

We went to the forum which was very old.  We met a seagull with her two babies. We checked out a well too.

We hung out with the Ron

Then we headed to the colosseum.  They said many animals, slaves and Christians were killed there.  I wonder what would happen to flat people like us.

 

We met some new friends when our carrying friends stopped for lunch.

We went to a concert at a Refuge camp.

 

We got to go out to lunch the next day.

Then we got to go to St Peter’s Basilica with the choir.

 

We next stayed in Montecatini and got to eat breakfast out in the garden.

There was even a huge lemon tree.

We found a really cool phone.

The drinks all through Italy were great.  We tried many different things.

 

We had tons of different pastas.

 

We had a lot of white meat but we did have some fish that was very good.

 

The dessert were out of this world.

 

We rode on a gondola, saw many rivers, were put in prison, the bridges were cool and sang many times with the chorus.

 

Italy was really fun.  We met many new friends and saw many new things.  The people  who took us with them were great.  They never left us behind or stuck us in a bag where we could not see.  They fed us good food and drink.  I am glad they have decided to take us with them everywhere.

Take Care,

The Flat Ole Hippies

 

 

Venice

We caught a boat to Venice where we met up with our local guide at St Mark’s square. We toured the Doge’s Palace which I would have thought was a home but it was where government offices were. We walked across the Bridge of Sighs which was the walk that criminals walked to prison. Venice floods regularly and that is why they have mosaics there.

 

We had planned to take a gondola ride with a couple of our chorus friends, so when they gave us free time we were off.  They were on lunch break, so we found a place for lunch. It was a great place.  It was behind the opera house, so all the opera singers would come there after an opera.  There were pictures of opera singers all over.  The people at the table next to us were from Bangladesh and it was one of their birthdays.  My small chorus, David, Sherry and Janet along with our waiter sang happy birthday to her which they all were very thankful for.

 

After a wonderful lunch we were off for our gondola ride.  We were standing in line and met two Russian girls who asked if they could share our boat.  We told them sure.  That made the 80 euro ride not bad at all when split 6 ways.
