There was so much packing to do, as you can imagine, we have collected a few things along the way, Laurie made me dispense with a few things since I have had a little retail therapy! All is good though and we managed to squeeze everything in. Gea, our landlord, came around for a farewell drink, after she left we went into "Antica Enoteca" in via della Croce near the Spanish Steps for a pasta and a bottle of Nero d'Avola, yum, an early night, we have a big day ...
We were blessed that Rick and Donna brought the Colorado sunshine to Florence with them! Yesterday we walked 10 miles showing them the main highlights of the old city. Last night we made chili (Donna brought me the beans and seasoning) which we took to our church's International Dinner at Erik and Clair's apartment. 31 people from all over the world attended. This morning we took a bus about 1 hour south of Florence ...

We had:- 5 different bruschetta- tagatallie with fresh black truffle ...
... that their belongings etc still exist today.
In the museum is a deed to a property, which is one of only a few examples of Etruscan writing. The item is priceless and was found nearby, it was on metal, but folded, and one piece is missing, who knows why??
It is a fascinating glimpse into an ancient world and makes you think about where we sit in this big ole world of ours, we're just a dot on its horizon and in this time frame..
