Well today is our last day in Florence - it is great. We did our afternoon tour yesterday, which included a visit to the Uffizi Gallery. Lots of wonderful artwork - we did not know what to expect, which is kind of a nice way to go into those type of experiences. Our guide was amazingly knowledgeable, but good grief she was zany! She was yelling at kids to hush up and at people who were taking pictures when they were not allowed...I thoroughly enjoyed it because she was willing to say what I was thinking :) Aggressive it. Then we had a FANTASTIC dinner - we were starving and ate pretty much everything in sight. Not to worry - I still had room for gelato though!!

Since the hotel has not turned on the AC, we had to have the windows open, which means...MOSQUITOS. I have an enormous bite on my right hand on top - from my knuckles to my wrist, and it is way swollen!! We are about to head to the pharmacy to get some itch cream.

Today we are going on a tour of the Tuscany region which includes Chianti tour and wine tasting. Should be exciting and so pretty too. Then we are taking a night train to Nice, which leaves around 11:25 tonight and arrives around 8:30 tomorrow morning. We do not have anything scheduled in Nice, so we are kind of excited about that. Maybe a day trip to Cannes? Who knows!

I will try and post again in the next few days - this free internet has been great! Happy Thursday!!
