Flag of Italy  , Tuscany,
Monday, September 29, 2008

Today, I spent the day around Florance, Italy.  I had a poor sleep because the other girls in the room snored so loud I could not tell the difference between them snoreing or if a vechile was speeding by when my window was open.  I slept in a little bit today until 10 am to catch up on my beauty sleep because normally I am up by 8 am. 

I hiked around town viewing the Uffuzi and the Accadamia with David.  I decided not to go and see David because I saw 2 replicas that were free so I did not want to spend 15 Canadian to see him a third time, just a bit older.  I did a beautiful hike to the top of a hill and saw a beautiful view of the city.  The colors of the buildings here are like Venice, mostly coral in color but with lots of goldish trimming.  I did some shopping because Florence has the best leather and jewlery in the world only made here so it is at a very good price for quality products!  My bag is getting heavy now again eventhough I got rid of some things such as my old sandals because they stank, my flat dress shoes because they broke, and some food I brought. 

I went to the super market to buy myself some groceries and I made some pasta with this amazing mushroom sauce (but not as good as Grandmas at Christmas) and tomatoes with Tuscany grapes.  Yummy.  Tomorrow, I am going to Sienna for a few hours and then to Rome, because I heard Sienna is beautiful and because the rail service in Italy makes you reserve your seats in advance for 15 euros for major cities, so instead of spending 15 euros, I am going to Sienna and then to Rome from there which does not require a reservation.  The sales people are agressive like Mexico, but you can strike a good bargain if you say you only have so much money and walk out a few times.
