We stopped by a olive oil tasting and festival at Pallazzo Medici Riccardi, and sampled around 15 different oils, all from the area around Regello, a common riding location for me. We decided on a couple and bought 5 liters of one, and 2 mezzo liters of 2 others for sampling. We picked up a 3 liter container that Emily will take to a friend in Colorado, along with a mezzo liter of another for him. I had taken my pack, but it was still heavy with all the oil, so we caught a bus that dropped us a block or so from the apartment.
I went for a long walk / stroll, in an area that I had first explored last Sunday when the weather was similar. I went up through the park by our apartment, then a couple of blocks on the street to another park, which connects to another park, which connects to a garden / park at the Museo Stibbert. This is a really wonderful amenity to have right by our apartment, and I was out around 2 hours just strolling through some beautiful, relatively manicured natural settings. Home for a relaxing night, then I start a new set of Italian lessons tomorrow morning. It will be 4 days a week, 2 hours a day, so it is not too much. Hopefully it will give my Italian a push to continue to improve. Ciao.
Here are the pink butterflies strung across the Ponte Vecchio.
This shows a mosaic with stones in a set of steps in the park by our apartment.
One of the many beautiful paths and corridors in the gardens at the Museo Stibbert.
These mushrooms (I think) were growing on a tree stump in the Stibbert gardens.
The light caught my eye, and I took a picture through barred glass of this interior
in the Stibbert Museum.
