Friday night found us in the Piazza Republica sipping down 1.75 euro bottles of wine. While a few people decided to check out the Discotech (read Millenium) Chris and I took the long walk home, I'm still easing into the whole party scene here, It's hard (read some of the kids blow) without Bill, Jerome, AC, Dan, Hannah, Liz, Mego, etc. Saturday morning I got up early and took a bus to the hilltop town of Fiesole. My host mother, Nadia, told me that Johnny Depp just purchased a house in the area. The bus dropped me off in a small piazza and I just started walking. I ended up on a hiking trail that led to the summit of Monte Cerci, not really a mountain (read hill). A scenic, underused trail, where on a Saturday I was the only one out. At the top there was a monument stating this was the spot where Da Vinci began his flight experiments. Saturday night, Chris and I shared a bottle of wine from our terrace, how boring! Sunday I spent the whole day reading in a few different parks, If you want to waste 10 hours check out "China Lake".
