I'm not keeping track of the days very well.

Venice was charming and chilly, and it was nice to spend a couple days in a city completely void of cars. We took a gondola ride, and fed the birds in the square (as per my sister's instructions).

Right now I'm in an internet cafè in Florence, I'm not going to give you a comprehensive rundown of things, by any means.

Today I saw three of the four Ninja Turtles and hordes more famous works. We spent at least two hours in the line for the Uffizi, but it was definitely worth it. If you want a little taste of what I saw today, I recommend googling the following terms:
  • Birth of Venus
  • Judith Slaying Holofernes
  • Adoration of the Magi (Leonardo)

Or, you could visit this site, which has a few more pictures from the gallery.

My favorite was called Leda and the Swan. I suggest googling that too, but you might have to specify Leda and the Swan, Leonardo.

I've eaten entirely too much pizza, pasta and gelato. I've also spent entirely too much money. Italy is making me broke.
