We headed out early today at 8.15 in an attempt to escape the heat, with the thought of being back in our room in the afternoon for a rest. It was expected to be 39 today. We also weren't keen to wait in long queues to gain entrance to the Uffizi gallery.

Oh well, no ones fault, an honest mistake. But even though a mistake, at this point, I was starting to lose it. I don't normally get stressed but I believe I I was on the brink of a nervous breakdown and I was freaked.
