Back in Florence

Sadly, my friend Kathy left for home yesterday, and I will miss her! The only thing better than experiencing a new country is having a buddy along! As we were walking to the Ponte Vecchio one day, the light from this side street struck me, partly because there was a waiter momentarily leaning against the wall, hanging out before the lunch crowd appeared. I did a double take, and with Kathy for moral support, walked over and asked him (through gestures; I need to learn the Italian words for “Would you mind posing?”) if he would resume his stance for a photo. He seemed amused to help out, even refusing a tip for his trouble! I’ll post a picture of the painting in progress when I get a lay-in done.
