Italy: Milan to Florence

The Chick here.

As you know, Marcy and the group are now in their Villa in Tuscany (link will take you to a site that has villas that look just like what she is staying in -- pool included).

Monday was spent driving hilly, curvy, narrow roads and stopping in small towns between the Villa and Siena.  OH!  Which is that town in which they have those rather famous horse races and do all that fun (but dangerous) flag stuff!

"Everything looks like a photo," Marcy said to me in an email.  That email came to me via her Aunt's blackberry, which seems to be the only cooperating mobile device they have.  And thank goodness for it or we wouldn't be getting any updates except a very occasional phone call!

Alas, she is unable to upload and send us photos with that Blackberry, which is why we got her an iPad...which is not working in Tuscany.  Sigh.

Here is a photo of a candle area in front of a Mary in the Milan Cathedral:

And here is a close-up of the candle she lit for Moi, being the sweet animal she is.

Today, they drove to Florence and she text/emailed me from here.

Who the heck knows what they are up to in the coming days.  When she left, we thought that their trip had been rather...planned, but alas, it has not been -- so it's truly an Adventure!

Stay tuned for more and on Friday (hopefully) a little announcement.

It certainly has sounded like more of an adventure than expected! But the sites all look and sound beautiful and I'm sure there will be many stories and memories to share. :)

Really, I should have said "sights!" :)
