Woke up & realized that the only available train to Florence stopped in Rifaldi, not Santa Maria Novella (the closest to center city). Tried to change it, but once again...no luck. Had to take a second train into SMN...

Arrived much later than planned...hungry & sweaty as usual (this train travel is dirty work!). Checked into Gabriella's (Canadian born-Italian married) lovely 3rd floor apartment in the center of Florence. This place was wonderful! ...I soooo wish we had more time here.
