Still Going Strong in Florence

Alot of time since I last wrote, but time passes, everything and nothing changes.

A great Sunday in Florence as this insessant rain holds promise of the most beautiful and verdent Tuscan spring ever.

The drizzly day began with Mass at the Duomo, cappuccino at Caffè Gilli, a snack of bruschetta and wine at a local enoteca, a pause at home to watch Papa Francesco's Angelus, a quick change of clothes, a street food lunch of bollito and tripe, a browse of the latest best sellers at Fetrinelli, a stroll though Tiger and then a great surprise towards the evening at Piazza Santa Maria Annunziata, a street food fair offering Pugliese and Sicilian delights, where we got our taste on with taralli, ricotta salata, caciacavallo, and to top the day off.....panelle.

And now to hear the echoes of rain at home while watching an old classic Anna Magnani film.

Buona Domenica.
