Today we spent most of our time on a sightseeing tour bus around Florence. For 20 euro you can HOHO (hop on, hop off) on three different lines around town and the surrounding areas, stopping at all of the key touristy areas. At the town of Fiesole, a gelato stop was in order. Unfortunately, the seat on a bus, even if a window seat, doesn't make for wonderful photo opportunities. It was, however, a great way to see most of Florence, and it ...
... of my list before I left home was an Italian handbag. I was in heaven. The shop Emile took us to was fantastic. I had a really hard time choosing. Got it down to three then chose the one I could use everyday. Smells beautiful. Mum bought one as well. We walked around a bit more but our legs caved in.

Temps are dropping from the 60F in Rome since it IS January, and we're moving northward in Italy. ...
... Lorenzo Market where they sell everything on the planet from squid to leather bags. So far, after a week in Italy with no particular agenda, I'm realizing that I'm guided more by vacation gods than maps. After circling I dont know how many churches and gelatto stands and umbrella hustlers, We finally found the central market with only 15 minutes left till closing time. One thing Ill say about Europeans, is that they live a much healthier lifestyle than ...
