A Rebirth

Florence.  The home of the Renaissance.  After spending a very tense 36 hours in Rome, we were ready for a re-birth.  I love this city.  It makes you feel good about being here.

Relaxing on the rooftop of our Florence Hotel

Then a very short walk to the Academia Museum to see some hack's sculpture.

I have been here two different times.  It absolutely amazes me how spectacular  Michelangelo's sculpture of David is.  It makes you go WOW!  History has it this was actually done by 4 different sculptors, but Michelangelo was the one who finished this masterpiece.

We walked right in with no waiting.  No crowds to impede us.   Maybe we'll put a hold on that return ticket for just a bit.
