We started the day with a major bummer: Bradley left for home bright and early, which makes me really sad. I miss him already and I'm jealous that he gets to see our pooch and smoosh his little Louie face. There are a ton of dogs in Europe, by the way, and people bring them everywhere with them.

I'll write again before we leave Florence, or "Firenze" (FEER-EHN-ZAY). Ciaociao!
... of it. The museum was filled with many pieces from Michelangelo and other Italian artisans. After the museum we went to the Boboli Gardens at the Pitti Palace. I have heard people rant and rave about them, but I may have left a little disappointed. The sights were beautiful overlooking the city, but I was expecting more out of the gardens.
