In Florence. Long train ride, in which almost everything that could've gone wrong went wrong, up to and including LOSING A BAG. A BAG WITH EVERYONE'S GODDAMNED SOUVENIRS IN IT. Bah. Dammit. I am going to pray that the nice people at the train station are able to retrieve it.

Outside of that, Florence is nice. Though hot. the 'mantrain' thing comes from the fact that the train we got on to go to Florence was crowded with faggy boys. LOTS of them. It was totally surreal.
  • The trains are essentially okay- budget additional time for getting around in a station, if you have to do a connection, though: that lack of time is why I lost my bag.
    The food is INCREDIBLE. I have not eaten so well in ages. In venice, try the pasta in black sauce: it's squid ink, there are chunks of calimari in it, and it is delightfully good stuff.

    Also, give up on your diet beforehand, if you are on one.

    • diet..nope not me :) one of the blessings bestowed on me by my fairy godmother is a high metabolism. I am a vegetarian though.

      Are you hitting Rome at all ?

      What wines are your favourites thus far ?

      just call me a shiny little brain picker
