and in case I forgot to mention this . . .

One of my friends has already tried to send something to my home address and I don’t think I have access to that mailbox. The nephew of the landlord lives next to me and I think it is his mailbox on the ground floor. Anyway . . . all mail to me should come to the FSU address.

And the Florence airport is closed for runway repairs in March so . . . try Rome or Pisa and take a train.

Going to Siena and San Gimignano (Tuscany country) tomorrow for a day trip. Will let you know how that goes.

  1. Take good comfortable shoes, Cars are prohibited in the city center. Are you going to the National Wine Library (Enoteca Italiana Permanente) their bar is open 3- midnight. Salute! Try a delicious local specialty Panfore di Siena ( a dark dense cake made with candied fruit, nuts, cinnamon and cloves) and Ricciarelli ( sweets made from ground almonds, orange peel and honey). You guessed! I bought a travel book specializing in Florence. Dad and I also bought our Italian language CD’s. A book did not accompany the set, so we will learn by listening (I Hope). Have fun and let us share your adventures. Love Mom
