This vacation is really nice, I feel like it is way more of a vacation than last summer when I was working those crummy jobs.
I have finally finished recovering from the French holiday celebrations... after two meals consisting of six courses and six varietiesof wine to go with them each, I felt like I had been hit by a train.
And what about Italy... Florence was great, it's an absolutely beautiful city, and really centered around its museums and history and art... I got to see the statue of David by Michelangelo which is astounding and breath-taking in person, like when you see the Eiffel Tower, or the Sacre Coeur. You have the pounding heart and the wide eyes. Something so universally recognized and known by everyone, so typical in picture but much more in person. It's interesting and fun seeing all of the differences in architecture and color and trends and people as well... I think I appreciated the scooters the most. One day I will have my vespa.
