My internship ended on Friday, and after a few days to relax and fritter away my time, I’m headed off to Florence as of tomorrow afternoon! Four and a half days of art history overload, visiting places like the Uffizi Gallery and the Palazzo Medici, which Professor Amy would have you believe is one of the most architectural-historically-important buildings ever. I’m also looking forward to hopefully taking a day trip to Siena, and following another tip to visit Fiesole – but my schedule is pretty tight so I’m thinking going up there one evening and looking for dinner and enjoying the sure-to-be-romantically-lit streets at night. That should save me time during the day when the museums and galleries are open, and it’s only a 20 minute bus ride from the city. I’m hoping to squeeze in some Italian street wandering as well, but there’s so much to see that I dunno if I’ll manage simple meandering. The weather is supposed to be pleasantly warm, around 18ºC, but since most people seem to have warm weather at the moment, it takes some of the pleasure out of bragging. :P I’ll be sure to take lots of pictures, assuming my camera doesn’t get stolen, and I’ll be back Monday night!
My work here is done.
