In which I do that tourist thing
This weekend my roommates and I headed up to Piazza Michelangelo to do some drawing of the city from above. Piazza Michelangelo contains a big copy of the David cast in bronze. Not bad at all and better than the marble copy in the Piazza Signoria but still not a patch on the original. Fortunately that is not the only attraction. It has superbs views of Florence from above located, as it is on a prominance on the West side of the Arno.
We got there, eventually towards lunchtime after a few digressions to purchase art materials etc.. Unfortunately they were relying on me to do map reading and my map, while perfectly servicable 6 weeks ago when we first got here is now rapidly disintegrating. Navigation has become one part actual map-reading, one part jigsaw solving.
