    So it happens that October with its preoccupations comes to a halt, I leave unfinished business and happily jump on a friend's car to Florence, where the train south awaits.

    Fast forward a day on the move, an evening sampling recipes in a little alley near the Fort, a huge breakfast and there we are.

    Then it rains, it stops, it rains, and we wait for the boat.

    We reach the other side, and coffee, and people watching and a long chat.

    We spend the day people watching, walking in and out, and having multiple delicious coffee while it rains and music plays inside, and one more pic please.
