Hello again everyone! After a long day of traveling we are finally in Florence Italy! It is so beautiful here and to think we are walking the same streets where Michelangelo created the David (or Da Vinci, according to our well informed Hostel receptionist haha). On the way to our Hostel we saw the Duomo and the Uffizi where we were trapped in a large crowd by a mime (Ughhh). Heather managed to escape (even though he grabbed for her pack), while Eden and two other girls were not so lucky. They were trapped behind him. The crowd laughed--It was like her worst nightmare (only she was wearing pants and they were on the right way around)--stupid mime. We finally arrived at our hostel and it is so cool! Its 1000 years old and is a historic landmark. There are only 3 rooms there so it is nice and quiet. After we checked in we had our first taste of Itallian Pizza!!!! So good and also pretty cheap. We started out with something simple (peperoni). Dont worry mom rawlings, we ll work our way up to the clams. Heather might even try it (she likes clam chowder). After dinner we took a romantic walk to the Ponte Vechio (well, it would have been romantic if we had some dashing young men with us--theres always tomorrow ; ) Afterwards we had some Gelato. Yum!!! This internet cafe is just a few doors down from our hotel so be sure to check back tomorrow. We might even upload some pictures. We miss you all and thanks for your posts. Its so good to hear from all of you.
