The last 2 posts were a tiny window into my experience with my new Italian friends at DHG. Before I began with the show and teaching events, I was fortunate enough to take a couple of days in the spectacular city of Florence (...or Firenze!) while I adjusted to the time change ;o). I will share some images and thoughts here in the attempt to convey some modicum of the beauty and history of this spectacular city.
I truly fell in love.
I cried (a few times)
I lived every minute in the moment. If this city is not on your bucket list, add now.
so, one more time...grab your nuno felted throw and your glass of Chianti and join me in Florence...
Oh, but wait. In transit.
While in Frankfurt with hours to spare what is one to do but eat? Sauerkraut and sausage with beer? Yes. Yes, I did. I people watched (business men, couples in love, business men in love...it was nice)
Then, on to the Uffizi where I have tickets reserved for 10 a.m.
Up top a kind tourist (A forensic accountant from Atlanta on a birthday trip with his mother) took my picture. We had a lovely conversation....thanks :o)
|Oooops. Not allowed to take pictures. My finger slipped. No flash.|
|From the Uffizi..the Arno.|
|My Favorite!!! Cappelle Medicee. Inside is below...|
|I call him Dave.|
|inside palazzo Medici...below too.|
|Lots of leather! I could hear them setting up bright and early each morning beneath my window.|
Fino alla prossima volta. Google translate tells me this says, "Until next time" Whether accurate or not will have to wait until I begin my lessons!
