Florence has been great. I like this city a lot for a few reasons:

  1. It's easy to navigate.
  2. Tuscany is beautiful.
  3. A lot of people speak English here because this is a popular study abroad destination (Read: Gonzaga brats). English seems to be the universal language.
  4. The city is very clean. There are far fewer cigarette butts littering the streets compared to other cities like Roma and Napoli.
  5. There are a lot of good looking girls here from the States (Read: Gonzaga brats).

Yesterday I went on a full day wine tour through Tuscany. This was one of my "Must-do" activities.

Did I knock over and shatter my wine glass at our first stop, stirring a roaring applause to which I stood, took a bow and blew kisses to my nearly 50 drinking colleagues? Maybe...

On our way back from dinner, did an Aussie and I lead a crowd of mostly retirees into singing the Bloodhound Gang lyrics "You and me baby ain't nothin' but mammals, so let's do it like they do on the Discovery Channel" over the bus intercom system? Maybe...

Am I off to Venice today? Yep.
