We took the road less traveled back to Florence…GIGI (the gps) had a fit of course, but by doing so we went through a mountain village and saw a beautiful sunset!

Oh, I miss this! We had so much fun and now I'm mad I didn't climb the Leaning Tower too! John has something to hold over all of us! You didn't mention how you had to pay to pee in Pisa!! Miss you and love you! Cath

This is one of the places I haven't yet seen in Italy. It looks wonderful! Thanks for all the pictures.

The full story... Deb sputtered about having to pay to "pee in Pisa" but did so. Cath on the other hand tried to stiff the attendant by playing the American tourist that no speaky the language. Failing that, she tried to negotiate on the price (+/- 20 cents US). Failing in that also... she refused to pay and left in a huff. As we supported her with various "you go girls"... the full magnitude of that decision must have become clear as they waited for me to climb the Tower. I'm sure the walk to the car and meandering drive through the city was punishing. Luckily we found a beat-up porta potty in a sad roadside park at the edge of the city that allowed her to "pee in Pisa for free". Once again proving Cath's steadfast determination! We love ya Cath.
