Made it to Florence

We made it after a long night flight over Greenland when it never got dark. It was wonderful to walk into the lobby of the hotel and see Kath sitting in a chair waiting for us. Our hotel is a converted convent on the Piazza deiAnnunciata just down from the famous doumo designed by Brunelleschi. It's n incredibly beautiful and vibrant place. I'm having big hassles with this ipad. Can't figure out how to post photos to the blog and can't figure out how to send email. I can receive them but can,t reply. So my plans of posting pictures here maay notcome to fruition until we get back. I will post updates here from time to time and if you want to contact me please post a comment to the most recent blog entry and then check back there for my response. I may or may not get this scrambled out. I'm not planning to spend my time in Italy worrying about computer glitches. There is so much to see and experience. I'll post photos on my return.

  10. Whenever the sun shines here, I think of you guys. Awesomely, that's been quite a lot since you've left! The wild roses have come into bloom as well...which of course also makes me think of you Joanna. I will gather some petals so you can enjoy their scent when you return. Sorry to hear about the iPad troubles. Glad to hear you're not to going to spend your time fussing with it. Love to you both, Linette
