They returned home, then Emily and I took Kate's car to IKEA, to buy some christmas stuff - fake tree (my first), some inexpensive ornaments, etc. It was totally packed, and as always an interesting cultural experience. I guess my Italian is getting better, as I can now communicate and am not intimidated by the rapid fire responses to questions. We returned home, and will return the car to Kate's tonight on the way to a holiday party at a mutual friend's house. Wow - Emily and I with a social committment in Firenze. Actually we have a few coming up, so we must be settling in. Hopefully a ride with the team in the morning, but we will see about the temperature when I get up. Ciao.
I just love this dragon sculpture in the park next to our house.
It is also a water feature - really cool!
The tiny road above the Stibbert Museum. Fun walking.
