I can't really say that we did a lot or saw a lot of the more famous things in Florence. I skipped seeing the “David” and avoided all places with lines or entry fees (which pretty much excludes everything that you read about). However, I loved Florence. Just walking around the streets, seeing the architecture and the multitude of piazza's and statues all over town was very enjoyable. I still find that the Italian women are rude and unpleasant. The men however are outgoing and quick to offer up a quick wink and 'bon journo' (and probably other remarks that I am unable to understand with my limited Italian).

The food has been hit or miss. Some places, it's amazing and others leave a lot to be desired. I fear that the Italian's laugh at us “American's” with our quick meals and haste to finish and 'check please'.

I think we all enjoyed our time in Florence. I find it interesting that the places that I enjoy the most are more likely to have a lot less pictures...

My favorite time in Florence was Michaelangelo Piazza at sunset. It was a beautiful vantage point to see the entire city. The piazza sits on the edge of the city on a hill with breath-taking views in all directions. Trinity thinks it would be a great spot for a marriage proposal. and states that she would expect nothing less... I fear it will take a man well off in order to please her!


We have been staying in a mix of hostels and small hotels where we have all three been sharing a room. Trinity and I will experience a shared dorm tonight as well as Corey. It will be interesting to see how it feels to sleep with strangers. I'm certain that Corey will be happy to finally share a room with men rather than us girls for once.

That's really all for now....no funny or interesting stories to share today. Will try to update again soon.
