Internet has been shoddy here, so I have not had much of an opportunity to keep up here, but all is well.
Florence is beautiful, and I think that I may have actually seen a few Italians, though it seems that this summer they are rather hard to come across. Americans, Germans, Dutch, English seem to feel the streets.
The lady that did our laundry is Albanian, our bus driver is from Kosovo, which is cool, but which just adds to the bizarre lack of Italians in our lives.
Today we visited Siena, a town architecturally stuck in the Middle Ages, which is so wonderful for those of us who get to visit it. A gorgeous place, of which I hope to share pictures when I get the wifi up and running again.
