... is up a hill. We are hungry but I refuse to get Italian so we keep going. The view is worth it & there is another statue of David at the top.

... We had realized before that Italy was hot but it really hit us during this 30 minute walk in the sun. We finally arrived at the Leaning Tower which was leaning more in person than I thought and less than Rachel thought.
