I can't believe the textures...
Buona Sera, Mum,
Today was a great day.
Our feet might say otherwise however.
Lee and I walked around all day in Florence. We saw some amazing views and lots of different textures.
I loved it.
My favorite part was where it was just Lee and me wondering on a road that seemed private - but was not. Most of the people took the quickest ways to see the major sights... Lee and me? No, of course not. We took a way that took us probably two times as long... but well worth it.
Our hostel has been great. Last night there were several people here; now we are down to three (Lee, me and a French woman).
We are centrally located and only a 7 minute walk from the train station and 5 minute walk to a fancy super market.
We have been eating out one meal and then making the rest back at the hostel.
Lee saw on a TV show that you could make pasta in a microwave... well, that is what we are eating! One of the guest from last night was very curious and impressed at his cuisine skills with a microwave.
Tomorrow we are going to hop on a train to Pisa. Crazy. It is roughly 1 hour away on the fast train and only costs us 6.5 Euro each (roughly $10 U.S.) I can not believe how easy and inexpensive it is to travel here. I wish it was like that in the States! I would be all over the place a lot more!
Well I am off to have a conversation with a French woman and Lee.
Have a great day... I hear there is a blizzard in WI. I am not sad to be missing that - It has been around 55 deg and sunny the past 3 days!
Hotel Locanda Daniel found on: Hostelbookers.com
Favorite dinner: Gnudi with topped with sage and browned butter
Favorite sound: Street musicians accompanying the bells of the Duomo.
My recommendation: Wander the streets at night and notice the textures change.
