I bought the special ticket that allowed a visit to Michelangelo house Casa Buonarroti which was really Michelangelo the younger a tad disappointed in only a couple of the real Michelangelo drawings there but the other art was beautiful, from the collection of Michelangelo the Younger.
I wandered around got lost bit by The Ponte Vecchio, a really beautiful bridge that I has seen from the Uffizi Gallery. I then wandered up and down alleyways for awhile. For dinner I got some Chinese from a take our by the hotel and went to sit on the balcony which was nice. The first thing I saw as I opened the door was this cat peeking through the railings at me what a shot it would have been I grabbed my camera but guess he took that as an invite and crawled right in and on over. I had to pet him he seemed starved for affection and we had a nice chat got some really cute photos.
We were interrupted by yet another Aussie who chatted through my meal and bragged about all the places he had been on this trip and was going to go and what he was doing when he got home and trip braggart. I saw him again this morning at breki and he went to sit across from me (obvious he loves to talk) but his wife picked another place last I saw them when I was checking out they were sitting in the lobby trying to get the internet going and his wife sitting looking disgusted they were still there 45 mins later.
I had tried to get tickets to see David at Academy Gallery but they were long sold out went by so early in the AM and the line was long. So I made a visit to the Medici's Chapels and Church of San Lorenzo tombs by Michelangelo they were quite beautiful.
