The first day in Florence was very rough for J and I because we were tired. Florence is also very confusing b/c at times you think that you are walking in the right direction but then BAM you are somewhere totally different.

BUT today we are enjoying Florence a lot more!

Today we went to the Accademia and saw Michelangelo's David, among many other things.
Then we went to the Uffizi Gallery which is said to have the greatest collection of Italian paintings any where--(Botticelli's Allegory of Spring, and Birth of Venus"
we took a break at the Museum cafe and had had cappuccino..salute.
(J tried but didn't like it)

We walked acorss the Vasari Corrido, which is basically a covered bridge, but was used by rich people way back when. It was a pretty view of the Arno (the Arno's not that pretty).

The best part of the night was dinner. J and I went to Trattoria la Burrasca. Its a cute little place that houses 10 tables, cheap wine and yummy food. J and I practied our Italian through the whole mean and ONLY spoke Italian to our waitress and we did a pretty goood job..if i say so myself....
