I’m finally here.
I left my house in California at 8:15 pm. After thirty-two hours consisting of three flights, a layover, two showers, a bus ride, four meals, and several hours waiting, I am finally here. In my beautiful room in Florence, Italy.
I can’t wait to actually see the city. Dinner is in two hours. I can’t wait.
Update: Dinner was fantastic. We walked a pleasant half-hour walk along the river to get there, and I Florence is beautiful at night. And the dinner itself: from the four courses of ‘appetizers’ to the lasagna to the dessert, it was a great welcome to Italy! I am so ready to sleep now.
