... great thing about traveling on a rainy December Thursday in Florence is that there are no lines at the Uffizi! This is a rare thing here. I was here in January about 10 years ago and found the same thing. In the summer, it can take hours just to get inside.
Elaine's explanations of the art and artists were wonderful. They really made our visit to the museum much more interesting. We saw several Botticelli's, a ...

We had a leather demonstration first up where the guy explained to us how leather was used and how to tell if leather was fake and what not. We then got shown around the shop and the bags and jackets were nice but sooo expensive so I gave it a miss, but a few of the girls bought these puzzle rings which were really nice but I reframed from them haha it was tough they had some really ...
