September 25, 2006. Getting a plan together can be fun!

This morning, we were awakened by a knock on the door and Vicki saying, Where are you guys? Its 9:30? Apparently our alarm didnt go off but neither did Sue and Jerrys! WE showered quickly and were ready for breakfast in no time. We went to a nearby bar and had cappuccino and breakfast. Shel actually had eggs!
Then we were off for sightseeing the Duomo and Baptistry, the San Lorenzo market, the Straw Market. We went through the area of the Ufizzi but it was closed on Mondays, however, we did go into the Museum of Science. We saw lots of cool stuff old thermometers, telescopes, Galileos middle finger, loads of mechanical stuff old lathes, calculators, etc.
We walked over the Ponte Vecchio and over to the Boboli Gardens also closed on the last Monday of the month. We did go in and out of lots of little shops and artisans stores. We also went into a nursery and saw a small olive tree with olives already on it!
It seems like we walked all day except for lunch, which we decided to eat like Italians first course of pasta, second course of meat, side dishes, wine, espresso but too stuffed for dessert.
We are back at our hotel, getting ready to have a light snack of pizza and gelati!
