There's a carousel that sits in the middle of the biggest piazza in Florence. It's not one of those broken down Coney Island kind of carousels, but a carousel that's always spinning even in the dark of night all lit up. Random, I know, but I'm going to miss passing that carousel every day to school and back. I'm going to miss walking into restaurants and seeing dogs underneath the tables, because yes, they're allowed inside here. I'm going to miss walking to every destination and enjoying the actual act of walking, the scenery, and the closeness of everything. I wish I could walk everywhere in America. It's so beneficial in multiple ways. I'm going to miss eating gelato whenever I want. Oh yes, I'm going to miss that very much. Did you know gelato is almost half as fattening as the ice cream we have in America? HALF! Not as if I'm worried about my weight here (we'll wait until my return to the States. Ha!). I'm going to miss the friends I've made here. True, all of them live in America, but we're so dispersed across the U.S. I'm not sure if I'll ever see any of them again.
And most of all, I'm going to miss Florence itself. It has definitely grown on me. It's beautiful, and historic, and cultured, and picturesque and everything is just so carefree.
I added some pictures I've taken of Florence over the past couple weeks just so you can get a feel for what Florence is all about.
I'll be in the sinking city of Venice for the weekend and I promise lots of pictures upon my return! :)
