we’re in beautiful florence, italy on the aussiegirl 40th anniversary birthday tour. eating lotsa crostini (chicken livers…yummmm), pasta, veal (osso buco tonight), wild boar, and other delicious tuscan dishes. not to mention the gelatos. we first stopped through pisa to check out the famous leaning tower, which doesn’t lean as much anymore. cheesey, i know, but had to take the obligatory “i’m holding up the leaning tower” photo. i might have more later, but i’m still a little dizzy from all the museums and espressos.
