Bits of Florence
31 Aug 2008

Ciao! I hope someone is still out there... I was really hoping to be able to post more while we were on vacation, but after my last post took an entire afternoon just to upload, I just didn't have the patience. Now, I'm back home, and getting all caught up. While I remember how to do this whole blogging thing, I thought I'd share a few photos from Firenze (aka Florence). While I've been to Italy several times before, it was my first trip to Firenze, and not surprisingly, it was amazing. We had unbelievable meals (thanks to my new favorite Italian food guide book, the Slow Food "Osterie & Locande d'Italia"... this book was a goldmine of great places, and I wouldn't go back to Italy without it. One word of warning though: don't trust the payment methods listed. Many of the places, esp. in Firenze, were cash only despite the description in the book), saw Italian opera in Boboli gardens, climbed the steps to the top of the Duomo, shopped like crazy, experinece plenty of Tuscan sun, and ate more than our fair share of gelato. While we were there, I was also lucky enough to get to meet Ilva of the lovely Lucullian Delights blog. What a wonderful treat! Ilva is a marvel with her camera and her recipes... I hope to be back with some recipes myself from the trip later this week. Until then, here are the shots from Firenze:
