The day after Christmas. What is there to do. Almost everything is closed and its a cold, rainy, and blustery day. Let’s go to the museums! This was actually a great idea because it was super rainy today. I’m really glad that we bought the Firenze Card because we got to skip the lines in the cold and rain and got to go straight into the museums. It was really cool to re-see a lot of the paintings that I had seen a few years before. And, knowing what I know now about Italian culture and even Classical mythology, the works meant a lot more to me. LIke I understood better about what they represented and were depicting. Afterwards we did more city strolling and eventually went by the grocery store for breakfast items.

But, like most busy museum visits, we were extremely exhausted and went home to relax and enjoyed a tasty home-made dinner afterwards.

Happy Birthday Ashley!
