A Travel Update from Firenze
1) We met up in Milan with (relatively) no problems! I didn't get to deposit all of my luggage in Rome before we set out, so we've had to lug it around for the past few days (sorry Matt!) but otherwise things have gone well. We haven't had any problems with the trains or travel arrangements at all, Miland and Venice were both fantastic, and we arrived here in Florence at about 12 noon today. We are here for three nights, then off to Rome for five more nights, then home!
2) Um, we saw Rob Lowe. Yeah, you read that right. In fact, here's a picture - not very good evidence, but the only bit we've got. It's him, walking away in the middle of the shot, with the black jacket and dark hair, and the blonde next to him is his personal tour guide:
Yeah, we were just kind of standing at the corner of this church (the Duomo in Florence) when Matthew says "Is that Rob Lowe?" We kept trying to make out whether or not it was true - and eventually I had the chance to hear him talk and I swear to you, it was indeed Rob Lowe. No kidding. Seriously! He was smoking a cigar, and he touched pink marble! Seriously!!! How do you make something like that up????
Anyway, things are doing good.... we're seeing a lot of great art and architecture, experiencing bits and pieces of Italian culture and having a great time along the way! I, unfortunately, have managed to take the Harlaxton Plague with me so I'm a little under the weather (mostly at night) but I'm not letting that hold me back!
Here's a shot of the Florentine sunset from Ponte Vecchio:
Seriously, we saw Rob Lowe.
OK, here's the main part of this post: links. These are the photos we've taken so far, but there are no captions (yet). The albums will be updated once we have time to add captions back in the states.
First of all, you can access all my albums at: http://www.picasaweb.google.com/christine.zani/
Second, here are the pictures we've taken so far!:
