|a wall of one dollar bills... who knows?|
|the twins in Florence!?|
Then we walked up MORE stairs....
|David? no just kidding.|
Hello little otter friend!
|some street art|
Then we walked up ANOTHER tower to the top of the Duomo.... they don't have elevators in these things. I wasn't exactly happy to do all of this on vacation. But remember those kids I told you I met on the flight to venice who went to Notre Dame? Well we were standing in line to walk to the top of Duomo and some kid behind us noticed we were American students and explained that he had just got separated from his friends. I asked him where he went to school and you can probably already guess but he went to Notre Dame! So I had to ask if he knew DJ and Taylor (one of the guys from the plane and their friend that the other St. Thomas students met) and that just happened to be who he got separated from! What a small world! I wish I could say we ran into them in Rome but no such luck.
Obviously I needed some replenishment after all this working out so I got a fresh squeezed juice.
And since we were in Florence we had to get florentine steak. But let's just say their idea of medium is RARE and their idea of rare is basically raw.
And on the last day we finally got to see the real David! My mom told me I had to and I'm so glad I did. It was nothing like I'd ever seen before. It was magnificent! And you weren't technically allowed to take pictures but I snagged one. shhh don't tell! Usually I would follow those rules but I didn't use a flash and I didn't understand what a flash would do to marble anyway.
Another david!? I swear these replicas were everywhere.
And before we knew it we were looking at the Trevi Fountain...
