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 then visited with John for a little bit.

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

No Room in the Inn

To start out I will say I have finally got an internet that I can use.  I have to sit in the lobby but maybe I can catch up a little bit before we are off on the bus again.

After the chorus sang mass at St Peter’s we headed to Montecatini.  We stopped at an autogrill to go to the toilette and grab something to eat.  We were approached and asked if we would mind going to another hotel for the night because the one we were supposed to stay in was overbooked.  We said sure.  Sounded like an adventure to us.

We arrived at the Grand Hotel Nizza where we got off the coach and then grabbed our luggage.  Then we were shuffled into a taxi go about 1/2 mile to the Astoria Hotel. When we stepped out of the taxi the spell of the flowers was like a light perfume.  That night we were so tired being that it was midnight that we did not look around much. We took the tiniest elevator I had ever seen up to our room.  Our room was small but very comfortable with a small balcony.  We opened the windows that over looked the quaint little street and off to sleep we went.

The next morning we got up went down stairs to have breakfast.  We ate in the garden taking in the old and friendly charm of the hotel.  As we ate we took in the wonderful smell of the flowers and saw the lemons on the small lemon trees in pots. After breakfast we walked around the hotel taking in the old charm of it.  We then met the owner who told us that he was the fourth generation and his son was going to take over for him soon.  His wife made beautiful flower arrangements all over the hotel.  I would highly recommend this hotel.

 

 

I haven’t seen one of these phones in a very long time.
