    Endless as it seemed, the rain was huge yesterday.

    Prompt solution for dinner:

    And a good solution it was. Here the tamer of the zucchini:

    So this morning, rain or not, I headed for the door and onto the tiny train westwards

    And in Florence, on to S. Lorenzo and the Market

    Out, sun greeting everyone, and a little moment in the square

    You know what's our target:

    Before reaching it, strange creatures start appearing

    Around the Duomo, it seems that everyone is carrying one or more cameras.
    Some with new urgency:

    Some are unconvinced. As always.

    Then an ice cream, and the Signoria:

    Then five minutes in Orsanmichele, marvel again.

    And the way back, to sit in front of the Duomo and enjoy those looks.

    Then, books, food, chat, train, back.
    And here I am.
