Before I studied Italian (I don't think I will ever be able to say learned) I used to travel to Italy and listen to the people speak and wonder what great things they were saying to each other. Well, now I know. It's just like us. The weather, their bum knee, the mother in law...on and on. I eavesdropped like mad and was somewhat disappointed there wasn't more drama. Sounded like drama but no. Just normal.
I was lucky and though it was cold there wasn't much rain. I went back to all the special places and found a couple of new ones. I'm getting to know the city pretty well as one of my favorite things to do is just wander the back streets.
Florence is deep in my bones now.Enjoy what I found this time!
