The return journey

sunny 28 °C

Dear All
We went back to Florence yesterday mainly to see the "real" David at the Academia. Simply awesome is the only word I could use to describe the sculpture and it stands 4.1 metres tall. It took Michelangelo 3 years to sculpt and the work and detail is simply stunning.
After that we split off from the rest of the group and wandered around the sights and sounds of Florence, looking at all the pretty baubles in the windows of the Jewellers at the Ponta Vecchio (hideously overpriced) and leather merchants. The leather jackets are so soft and not necessarily all that expensive.
Even though we took it fairly easy, it might not have been easy enough as I became rather ill that night. If anything, I think it was my body telling me "enough", so we are both having an easy day back at the Villa whilst all the rest of the crew have gone to Assisi.
Friday is an easy day at home as well packing bags and last minute preparations for our departure early Saturday morning for Rome.
Take care all.

Ciao Ciao

So sorry to hear you're feeling poorly Bee! Not surprising - its pretty full on. If you're going to miss anything due to exhaustion, Assissi is a good one to miss! All uphill to get to the good bits, and hard work I recall. A day at the villa is not to be sneezed at - its lovely just relaxing there and looking around. Have a fab time in Rome - what a city. Looking forward to seeing you soon.
