Today we woke up after our first night in Italy!! Things started off a little crazy as we were supposed to be back at the Pisa airport to meet up with the group and head out to our hotel in our motorcoach.  We asked for an 8am wakeup call that we didnt get and ended up sleeping in till 10am when we were woken up by a horse carriage clanking down the cobblestone road outside our hotel window.  We had 15min to get ready and catch a taxi to the airport, but we hurried and cleaned up and packed and made it on time to meet up with Delshads best friend Tara and her husband Sean and the rest of the group of older folks.  From here we hung out around Pisa for a bit and got some great shots at the Basilica and again the Leaning Tower and got the worlds best deal on a rolex (15 euros).  From here we left for the town of Montecatini Terme where our hotel will be for most of the trip.  To our excitement it was much nicer than the Grand Hotel Duomo in Pisa.  Here we relaxed for a bit, and caught a Simpsons episode in Italian, and then went exploring the town.  It was a quiet and beatiful city with lots of restaurants, cafes, and gelato shops.  Finally, we ended the day with some wine and a excellent pasta dinner.  Time to go to bed for an early morning departure to San Gimignano...
