We are far behind on our posts and pictures as we were very busy in Florence and have done many outrageous things. I am attaching a picture of me on the table at dinner at the Borghese Palace and a picture of the room. Since I am a guest of Italian government owned television RAI, we are being treated in a fine way. Our dinner was a lot of very delicious round things that came on many beautiful plates which we ate with more silver forks than we even have at home. A lot for a Flat boy. The room was fit for a King.
I am also attaching a picture of the River Arno and the building across the river from the place where we stayed.
Next should be a picture of a ceiling at the the Uffizi as we could only take a picture in the entry.
There is a picture of me looking at Mimes on the street in Florence. Mimes are people that really hold still. You drop a EURO in the box in front of them.
A EURO is what the money is called they use here and in most of Europe. A EURO is the same as 1.33 dollars, so essentially we gave the mimes $1.33 for having my picture taken with them.
We have pictures of other things which we will post maybe tomorrow.
