Europe - Day 10

We got up the next morning and hit the town. We walked along the Arno and enjoyed the views. The Ponte Vecchio is kind of in the background of the picture below. :-) We also went to Tuesday Market. The market occurs every Tuesday, obviously, and is filled with food and clothes. It is much more of a local thing than a tourist thing and I loved being around it again.

The Ponte Vecchio
After the Ponte Vecchio we walked around the Uffizi, bought a watercolor from one of the artists outside (I have decided I could fill a wall with watercolors from Florence), and then headed to the villa that our school owns for lunch.
We had a great time meeting the current HUF students and teachers and it was so nice to see Kyle! Kyle and I studied at HUF during the same semester in college and he is now the Assistant Director there. We picked an incredible day to visit the villa because the ladies made lasanga - Mike's FAVORITE. (Thanks again for lunch, Kyle, Robbie and Mona!)
After lunch we grabbed some gelato in town while we explored more of Florence.
The sky was amazing and I can't wait to get a copy of this picture for our house!
The Arno as the sun sets. I was pretty proud of this shot, too!
