... with no machinery. The amount of work and dedication that it took is mind blowing. The Uffizi was one place I just had to go to and the queue was quite short so, in Mary and I went. Again we saw so much beautiful artwork and sculptures. I must say that some of the tour groups in the Uffizi, I won't mention which country they're from but, they are so rude.

LJ and Dad sorted some formalities (aka signed our lives away), had a photo shoot with our red ride and then got the beast growling; Dad behind the wheel, Mr Mafioso in the passenger seat and LJ riding shotgun in the back of this latest model Ferrari California.
