En Route to Florence, Italy and evening.

May 8th 2005 Florence, Italy

  • Ate breakfast at the Contiki Hotel
  • Ate lunch at a rest stop in Italy – delicious Italian Pizza
  • Ate dinner at Certosa.
  • En route to Florence, we stopped in Pisa and checked out the Leaning Tower of Pisa.  The Tower itself is pretty cool.  I took a ton of pictures there.
  • Pisa is the capital of crappy souvenirs.  People are selling crappy souvenirs like no where else. Like fake Oakley sunglasses and fake Rolexes.
  • Florence is an awesome city.  My introduction to the city started with a trip to our hotel.  It’s a probably so far the nicest hotel of the tour so far, with a shower that has no frame.  It’s completely open to the rest of the bathroom.
  • We had our group photo and everyone looked pretty flash. In front of the city skyline of Florence
  • It turns out the group photo did not turn out. Well as my face is missing from the photo.
  • That evening we had diMay 8th 2005 Florence, Italynner up in the Tuscany hills and it was a special Italian dinner that is done for normal Italian weddings.
  • The dinner was excellent. It was as follows.
    • First course – antipastos and lots of wine, unlimited.
    • Second Course – Lasagna and noodles and lots of wine, unlimited.
    • Third Course – Beef and Potatoes and lots of wine, unlimited.
    • Fourth Course – some kind of brownie and of course, lots of wine.
    • Fifth course – Espresso
  • During dinner, we were entertained by a variety of entertainers, from 2 opera singers to an old man at a piano wearing a hat.
  • After dinner, we were offered more wine. And bit more wine after that.
  • Then dinner was over and our tour manager that as a surprise, we were going  to a night club afterwards.
  • Next, we went to the Super Space Disco – the premiere club in Florence. :)
  • At the club, we drank, danced and had a good time.
