... at the statue of David. I thought he was a bit out of proportion. His feet and hands seemed too big but Chris set me right with a dissertation on what Mr Buonarotti was thinking when he was whittling away at his block of marble thinking that it was going to be hoisted on top of Il Duomo's dome.

It is still early in Florence. The sun is still yet to rise. Looking forward to today as Pamela and I are going to the Medici Chapels and the Duomo or the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore.

Today was primarily a travel day - we took the Circumesuviana from Sorrrento to Naples, then a fast train from Naples to Florence, arriving a little before 1:00. We were able to drop our luggage off at the new apartment, and then we wandered around and found a place to eat lunch. Florence is HUGE compared to Sorrento - we were getting really good at navigating Sorrento's main street (which runs the entire length of the town), but this is going to be a new experience ...
