no class today!!!! love not having friday classes! so today was a very productive day! emma n i started off getting our books around town and stopping over at the API office to check our emails because there still is no internet. it was good just walking around the city and trying to figure out whats what and where everything is. and on our way back to the apartment we went to the Accademia where Michaelangelo's David is. OH MY GOD! once again, i have never seen anything so magnificent and memorizing in my life. there is no way you can't be in awe of it. i wish we could take pictures of it. emma and i just kept walking around and around him. you can see every detail of him. the veins in his hand, the wrinkles in his toes, its so cool. and knowing that basically anybody who is somebody in history has stood in front of him, like the pope, kings & queens, everyone in history. so amazing! and there is so much other work in there. thankfully API gives us a museum card so we can go to basically any museum in florence for free! after we were done admiring david, we went back to our apartment for some lunch. then emma, emilie(my roomie), and myself went to the Uffizi gallery. where once again we couldn't take photos but holy crap! google uffizi gallery and you will see what i am talking about. we saw pieces by Michaelangelo, botticelli, ruben, the list goes on n on...once again google uffiz gallery and be amazed at the pieces that are in there. the place is sooooo big! we were in there for hours and we didn't get through it all, thankfully we have plenty of time to go back to it.
