Florence!

rain

This is amazing! Last night before I updated, Andrew had the idea to email the hotel. Well after about a half hour or hour.. someone showed up because she saw our email!! So we were let in and got a good nights rest (actually even overslept until 10am.. ugh)

anyway.. today we did a lot for waking up so late... we went to the Duomo, saw the gorgeous doors on the Baptistery, went to the museo dell'academia (i think thats what its called... something academia.. i have it written down) and saw David there (it was amazing how incredible that statue is in person... I must have forgotten how huge it is... just breathtaking)... then we got lunch at a random sandwich shop.. we went to the place where all the famous artists bodies are.. Michaelangelo, Rafaello, etc etc.. that was pretty cool to see... we went to dinner at our favorite place yet. we both got pasta dishes but they were delicious -the best food weve had yet. after, we went to this little pub with 2 guys we met on the line for the academia building... theyre really cool and have been travelign around europe for 6 weeks and still have 3 to go.. theyre actually going to be in barcelona when we will be so we might meet up with them

the best part of today was that it rained all day.. sounds like it would ruin it, but it made it so quirky... it was uncomfortable but we had an amazing time... also, it rained so weird... usually at home, it will either drizzle all day or pour for a couple minutes and stop.... it poured for about an hour, then was sunny, then poured for another one... probably 4 or 5 times... it was so uncomfortable!

anyways... we decided to stay an extra night in florence so we can spend the day here tomorrow... so im off to footrubs and sleep (2 things i need really badly right now)

tomorrow were doing a couple more things in florence but mostly trying to sit back with a bottle of wine and enjoy the piazzas and markets... then the next morning were off to our daytrip to bologna!

arrividerci belli!

ps the internet isnt working on andrews computer so still no pictures but hopefully itll work at the hotel were staying at tomorrow night (were switching hotels b-c this place screwed us we felt) miss you all!
