today we went to PISA!!! we had a bit of an issue getting there at the train station because we didn't realize that you had to get your ticket time stamped by a machine, after you bought it. and the conductor did not know how to relay that to us in english, so needless to say we had to wait 20 minutes for the next train. which wasn't bad at all. we learned from it and we still got to Pisa. the town itself was cute but not really that exciting. until you obviously get to the leaning tower of pisa. which i didn't even realize that there was a duomo and baptistery there as well. the three buildings together were magnificent. the tower was wicked cool to see. and we all were so impressed and taken back by the church. my camera of course died just as we were walking up to the tower so the other girls have pictures of it all. the day was absolutely beautiful. we ate gelato on the steps and just rested in the warm sunlight. it was the first truly perfect weather we had.
