Florence a 30 minute drive from where we are staying on a beautiful blue sky day was a memorable day. We parked our car for free at the top of Piazza Michelangelo (very import as it cost 1 € to go to the bathroom) and surveyed the beautiful city.

We had to get lunch. We found a cool sports bar with a cheap menu that looked rather enticing. As we were looking at the menus at a table we had sat down at, a guy turned around from his table and asked us to use our phone. He was American –so no language barrier. He told us that his entire backpack had been stolen. ...
