Florence

We got out a little late and went to the Museo del Bigallo across from the Duomo. This was originally an orphanage; women could leave babies outside – if they came back within a week, they could take their baby back, otherwise it was put up for adoption.

Then we walked past the Duomo and got a cheap, quick lunch at a cafe. The girls were traveling from South Carolina sitting at the table next to us – we talked for a while, and they took our picture.

Aviva didn’t feel well after lunch, so she sat down for a bit while I went to the Museo del Duomo (she went the last two times she was in Florence).

Aviva felt better with some water, so we walked down to the Uffici – we had 2PM tickets. As usual, it was really cool – hey, who can complain about a museum with a whole room of Botticellis? We had a snack at the rooftop cafe – as you can see, someone else had a snack too.

We went back to the room to repack – tomorrow we train to Rome. We had dinner at Restaurante Pouli near the hotel – it was very good.

Where we had dinner - a former church with frescoes from the 1800s
