I penned this post in advance, just hours before leaving on my Italian girls getaway. But if all has gone according to our schedule, we took a train to Florence from Rome yesterday, and checked into our apartment in Florence. We are in the Santa Croce area of Florence, in a building that dates back to the thirteenth century! In fact, Leonardo da Vinci began his first apprenticeship at the age of thirteen on the corner of the block where we are staying.
By now, there should be pictures posted on Flickr and Facebook. I would love to hear from you. You can comment at the Surfnetkids Facebook page (as long as you have already “LIKED” me.)
