Florence: Art, Beans, Leather

March 4, 2008 at 5:36 pm 2 comments

Check that out. Pretty beautiful? Yeah. I went to Florence for two days. It was really beautiful and there was a lot of amazing art. Luckily, it was early enough that it wasn’t all tourists either. I went alone, which was pretty nice. It’s a little unusual to go anywhere you want on a whim, or just sit and take your time, because after all, it is your own. I’m not going to write a ton about Florence because so many people have been there and I’ve already done a lot of writing in the captions of my pictures.

I did pretty much everything I wanted to do, and got to eat a lot of really delicious Tuscan food, including crostini on polenta, minestrone soup with beans, and good steak. There was a lot of leather too, which at one time I would have been rather opposed to, but believe me, this stuff puts the “art” in “artisanal.” I had a little difficultly with my reservation at the Uffizi galleries, mainly because they it sent me seven hours after I needed it, but I ended up only waiting 20 minutes and they apologized in an email I received this morning:

On saturday there were some problems with internet due to some squake (is it correct?) of earthquake near Florence and we had no line for some hours, sorry again kind regards (on today we’ll do th erefund on your credit card)

I’m not sure about an earthquake, but whatever. It’s wonderful out here, and I hope it is where you live too.
