Florence arrival and first day.
Jane dropped me off at the airport and the traffic going in was nasty. We did not have time for a drink but just went right to the gate.
My flight was on time and uneventful. However my time in the airport in Paris was totally creepy. I don’t want to write about it now but I will later. I don’t want to spoil another wise lovely day.
Our apartment is perfect in a funky sort of way. It is a very old building and we are on the top floor. We have amazing views. There is a sky light in Peggy’s bedroom overlooking the Duomo and Palatso Del Vechio. We have a porch full of plants that overlooks a garden. We have a full kitchen and three bathrooms although one toilet is a chemical one and we were asked not to use it. I am sure there is a story there. We took a lovely nap and then had a drink and some goodies that Neal and Peggy shopped for. We went to dinner at a place just a few steps from our front door. The food was just what we expected. Because we took our nap we were able to eat dinner at 9:00 just like the locals.
We fell into bed for a very sound sleep.
