via tournabuoni, via del parione





Janneche and I had lunch at Obiko, the mozzarella restaurant. Excellent mozza, pesto, olives and focaccia bread. Bad service.



Dessert at Rose's. No booths anymore, but great desserts. Next time we'll share. Thanks, Janneche.

campanile di giotto





Today I am posting a photo on pigeons, which are everywhere here. I was standing at the bank machine, when I felt, heard, some pigeon droppings fall on my glove. It's like when you trip and you look at the ground to check, and I did this - looked up at the building to see if a pigeon was actually up there. It was. This happened to a friend once, only it fell on her shoulder. I told her that it was good luck and I've decided that I will consider this lucky. It missed my hand.

Masayo. She's the first friend I made when I came to Florence and she works at this stationary/gift shop called Il Papiro. In this photo she's showing the paper she just marbled.
