... leave, and I had to stop geeking out. The museum is huge, and I definitely could have spent at least half a day or more there. Not as long as the Britism Museum or Louvre, because the Uffizi is just art, but still. An hour and a half was not enough.

In Italy, it’s a salumeria. At Salumeria Il Cencio, Jay and I ordered an out-of-this-world porchetta sandwich made with fresh mozzarella. One of the shopkeepers doted on Giacomo , which seemed to be a recurring ...
