It was a great week, very relaxing and I was able to get a lot of exploring in. On Sunday we went to a Florentine soccer game...they wone 3-0. It was an incerible experience. I found that Piazza Liberta (just down the street from my pensione) is a great place to do homework...it's real chill. Lot's of people let their dogs run loose there and I learned that the huge arch it holds is one of the only remaining pieces of the old city wall. I discovered a couple of street performers in the Uffizi Gallery that play at night. They sample tunes from some of the American classics: John Lennon, Paul Simon, Simon and Garfunkle...only the great stuff. Tomorrow is Andrew's Birthday and also the departure for Rome...it should be a big weekend.
