Jumping into today, let's start with a quick walk around the piazza
near our Hotel Roma in Florence.
Church Street Level Facade
Everybody bicycles here, no matter their age
One of the few homeless we have seen in Italy
he has a guardian dog
St Peter's Basilica rising in the mist
Then we drove through the Tuscan countryside
with its straight rows of olive trees and grape vines.
Almost looks fake, with its neat little rows.
Hmmm, Church and Tower don't seem
to align themselves
Under a Pisa street lamp
Every tourist wants to either straighten, embrace or hold up the tower...
in a photo.
We were content to watch it lean.
A street artist sketches...
One of the numerous African trinket vendors
Finally, a visit to a vineyard.
Grapes are ripe, harvest is in progress.
That concludes this day, tomorrow we trade the Tuscan countryside
for a city with no streets...
