... it was the best breakfast we have had so far. After we packed up and checked out (the hotel kept our bags locked up for us for no charge) we walked next door to the Uffizi Gallery. This is a day of many views and our first one took us to view many works of art. We saw marble busts from the first century! This is one of the most complete collections of Italian and Florentine Art. We saw many famous works by da Vinci, Micheangelo, Botticelli, Rembrandt, ...
... Thanks Lana - it didn't disappoint. La Carraia. Value for money and worth the not too far walk.

The money that would've been spent to at the time would have been astronomical. A fair amount of narcissism ...

On the way to meet them, I picked up a bottle of wine. I took the subway in the opposite direction of my hostel, it was late, dark, lots of people out drinking. I was a little scared to be leaving the area I was familiar with but oh well, I wasn't going to pass up an opportunity to meet people! ...
