Chris and I woke up woke up and decided to do our first load of laundry, which took a bit of time and 20 Euro (I think it is better to buy a washing machine in Europe!).   After a little lunch and a shower,  we decided to shave our Euro-beards, as they were becoming itchy.   Clean shaven, we set out to see the David, which they sadly would not lets us photograph!  The statue was immensely impressive and much bigger than I imagined.  Huge hands with veins to boot.

After sightseeing we met up with Lorenzo and Alex to shop/walk around.  On night 2 we had dinner at a place called the White Boar which had boar meat on the menu, very gamey but interesting.  After dinner we went to a club and bought bottle service which is nothing like bottle service in the states.  There is no exclusive area and it was very poorly run.  You couldn't buy drinks at all after your bottle was done.  Our table was surrounded by 16 year old Italian locals and I have not felt so old in a while!

Luckily two of our group managed to woo some Polish girls and they danced the night away without speaking!  Fun times in spite of some minor annoyances about the club.
