City views…

Sometimes Stefano and I dream of moving far away from Florence…

We simply get sick and tired of all the traffic…of the pollution…of how expensive it is to live here…of the horrendous heat during the summer months (never ever visit Florence in July or August…mark my words)…

But then (as we did yesterday evening, on our way back home from walking through a Tuscan nature reserve) we stop at the Piazzale Michelangelo, which has the best panoramic views of the city, and we realize that it would be difficult for us to move away…

Florence still takes our breath away…

Recently, I have seen lots of Italian flags hanging from apartment windows in celebration of the 150th anniversary of Italy’s unification. But yesterday evening, while enjoying the view from the Piazzale, my glance fell on the, er, rather unusual flag here on the left. How original, eh! 

A quick mention, off topic: I am working on about a million different posts (well, okay, slight exaggeration, there!), but mostly I have been celebrating my good test results by taking some time off…spending it with Stefano or in my garden, planting bright, cheery-looking flowers…having fun with my girlfriends (well, and of course my day job takes up a good chunk of my time…).

Research can wait…yes…until tomorrow…

  1. Actually the only time I have been to your beautiful city was. . .in August! Other than being somewhat humid, it wasn’t unpleasant. We thoroughly enjoyed our short visit there, trying to cram into our stay as much as possible.

    So glad your test results are holding steady and hope they will continue to do so for a long time!!
