      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!

      We havent had wifi for a while so sorry for lack of updates. We took the train from Venice to Florence and it took around 2 hours. The train travels at 250km/hr.

That afternoon we went and found a place for some food. Prosciutto and fresh mozzarella for ...

One bright note was that we did find some paprika Pringles that we have found out are quite amazing. As we made it to the tower it was all that it ...

      ... off but if you ask me we made the tour that much more fun. Driving through the countryside in Tuscany was something else, never have i seen so much green in my life and not just any green, a luscious vibrant one. One of the prettiest things i have seen.
