... also. It was beautifully roasted and tasted delicious.
The night ended late with a hairy ride in the coach down the driveway leading from the restaurant. Boy, do these coach drivers earn their money navigating the tight streets and mountain roads of Europe.
We will be sad to leave Florence as it's a beautiful city with so much to see and so little time to see it all. But tomorrow we leave for the Cinque Terre and we can't wait.
