Vita Bella!

I am in Florence, which is easily the most awesome city ever. There's Italian leather on every corner, along with odd choices of street performers, and very adorable hotel clerks.

Except, everything closes early and your sister's bank card stops working. And the third kind of keyboard you've seen isn't like the first or second, and some of the keys you're pretty sure just aren't correct.

I am exhausted and ready for sleep, I think. Last night we shared six seats with two other women, and we all lied down in the train compartment. Not the best sleep ever, I am very much looking forward to our big comfy bed.

I get to see Michelangelo's David tomorrow! That's hardcore.

I can't believe I am in Italy.

I have wanted to go to Italy ever since forever! Especially Florence and the Tuscan hills - and you are making it sound so enticing. You know, despite your faith, you should really try going to a church service in Florence in one of the cathedrals tomorrow [of course you will get this too late to take this piece of travel advice!] and I bet that it will be magnificent!

Kiss David for me. I doubt that it is allowed, but do try! Where do you go next? Hope you're better rested tomorrow and can have more fun amongst the leather goods!

I am so happy you are enjoying your trip and can't wait to see pictures!
Eric tells me that Florence was his absolute favorite city in Italy [he did a summer study abroad there in 2003].
Have a great time!

jkrissw told me I should say hello, since you're here in the boot. :)

I hope you'll like Italy. Buon divertimento!

Hi! Yes, we are in the boot. In Rome for the next three days, and then no more! Any suggestions?
