      ... It was estimated that the drive would take over 3 hours but the fast train would take 1.5 hours! Why would anyone drive. On top of that, once in Florence, we had to pay 25 Euros a day for parking which is considered cheap.

      ... I eventually forced myself up by 9:30am and made myself a big omelette with spinach and tomatoes, and a large cup of espresso. I decided that, for the heck of it, I would go to Florence that day.

      I took Gloria down the mountain and followed the signs for 'Firenze,' taking care not to get on any highways where I would surely be overtaken and killed instantly. Despite a brief heart attack where I did almost get on a highway, and another when in which I almost ran out ...

      ... trying to keep my hand steady as the bells of one church finished and another started!

      I thought I could go through Villa Bardini into the Boboli Gardens, and the signs seemed to indicate that, but I never could find my way.
