Today we left Roma and headed for Florence. We got on the bus at 9 and stopped in Pisa around 215 to see the leaning tower of Pisa. We had 20 minutes at the leaning tower of Pisa and an hour at basically a truck stop for lunch. After lunch we got back on the bus for another 4 hours. Around 6ock we arrived at the hotel and realized we had stopped at the statue of David and a panoramic view of the city. We went and saw the statue after fighting the rush hour traffic only to realize the statue was a copy, not in fact the real one. Once we got settled into the hotel I met up with one of my best friends Carly and hung out with her, her roommate, Paige and a few other friends.
The program switched the days around so we were off to Venice
Today we had the morning off so Jessica, Paige and I went to the Domeo and walked around but didn’t know you could walk up to the top and see the whole city. Next we went to the Uffizi Museum. We saw to works of art where the women looked pregnant while being proposed to by the sons of the king of France. The pregnancy was a symbolic gesture toward the king saying I know my role as a woman
We got up at 6:30 and drive to Milan and flew back to Cyprus. We finally thought our curse was over but nooo they wouldn’t let us check in because they did not believe that we were students there and wouldn’t given us our boarding passes. In the end they gave in and let us have our tickets. We made it home safely.
