Tuesday, September 4, 2012

This is a Dominican church which was modified by Danti under the command of Chismo Medicii.

Remember this - Verregio Pistoia Lucca - these are the trains that take me home to porte soraligio (my Italian spelling is horrid)

Got a redbull!
Didn't think they wouldn't allow phones to be on..Shoot

I will post the photos of my notes that I took on pamphlets while in the church

Bought the bag I've been lusting after in Emerald (again pictures to be attached)

also got a tie for my old boss because shirts are just too $$ - I'm sure he will still love it though.
Very upset the bank charged me 65€ to take out my money though - that's fucking crazy. Will be talking to them later.

went to the bookstore - hint hint I would love these books hehe they are too $$$ here in English though :( the only place I've seen English books is in Florence so far

it is so sad to see so many beggars but I know of I give to any I could get in trouble =\

Hoping on the 147 train which hasn't left and its 151...whoa... hoped on a different train because ours was delayed by 10 minutes.

Some guy sat with us and was like camera, YANK! Apparently he is a photographer :p
Introduced ourselves to what his name sounded like Ulysses

Betty and I went out together grabbed lunch at betti the little place near the school and ate while we watched the band warm up - amazing music!! I loved it :)

I put a video of the music here. Then Betty and I went out looking for shoes/rain/winter gear - way too $$$ for us :p so we will wait.

I got pizza alone cuz no one invites me to dinner, the little old man wrote me a cute note on my Atomically pizza

Great pictures - I like the pocketbook with the bright color green. Bag lady - that's me. I remember the beggers in Florence. I took a picture of one at the Church in Florence because I thought it was so artistic with the gate, etc.
I don't want those sunglasses (the white ones). But I quess you have a girl named Betty that likes them.
I like the picture of the Street Art. Was that in Florence?
This is so nice you have this blog to look back on years from now.
Enjoy everyday!!!

I love the street art. You should put your schedule on here too. And a review of the restaurants too. Hopefully the stingy place improves. It's raining big time here.

The glasses you see are actually a mssage for your eyes, i made her try them on after my nose tickled from the crazy head gear.

The street art is actually a way to gain money - many times they leave a basket out while they draw, and people just drop things in. Yes this was in florence, i have geotagged myself in all the entries so i can keep track as i go. Later in the trip we are going to sienna, rome, piza, pistoia, and i think 2 other places.
