... the oldest bridge. Today it is a pedestrian bridge, but originally, it was lined with butcher shops who used the river to dispose of their waste. When the Medici’s built on the other side of the river, they ousted the butcher shops and installed shops selling gold and silver that still remain today. The shops offer many kinds of beautiful gold and silver jewelry, but sidewalk and street hawkers have invaded this lovely area selling trinkets ...

... detoured around in the side streets and all shuffled into the store.

A lovely Asian woman gave us an explanation about how they traditionally made their leather goods. They use a wooden base and wrap it in multiple layers of damp treated leather and it dries hard then they can in lay gold foil into the desired pattern and cut the top off the box (Except for a natural hinge) the wooden base is then removed and wallah you have a box!

The last bit of the walk is up a hill (of course it is to get a bird's eye view) and I waddle up there from all the pizza, pasta and gelato I've been consuming for the past week or so.

Whew! Not so hot today but tiring. We did the rounds...The Musee dÁccademe, Uffizi gallery, Musee Galileo (I was disappointed that works by the great man were markedly absent but the contents of the museum were inspiring), but I didn't get to (my) main game - Galileo's (and Michaelangelo's) tomb(s) in the Santa Croce cathedral - definitely tomorrow!

Footsore and tired tonight but pretty inspired with what humanity can do given the inspiration!
