Passing Thoughts

From Ponte ala Carraia

From Ponte ala Carraia

  • even the coos of the pigeons sound Italian
  • I've given up and the bidet is now my foot bath
  • there's a cord next to the toilet, so I pulled it and an alarm went off. the Italian version of "help, I've fallen and I can't get up."?
  • buying a new pair of specs and having the salesgirl say, "Oh! You look Cheeky!"
  • my mind is struggling to think in Italian, not English and there are times that I'm reading Italian and simply understanding
  • Sunday morning church bells sound differently than the rest of the week
  • not sure which was the headier experience/sensation - the scents in the Santa Maria Novella Pharmacy [oldest pharmacy in the world] or the antique store I wandered through
  • the sound of a flute playing in the courtyard over coffee this morning
  • marble floors cool your feet and don’t creak
  • helped another English-speaking couple understand how to buy produce
  • lower back hurts from cobblestones and unfamiliar curb height differential, think step*thud! step*thud!
  • Vlatko's face when he told me about the River Tara and his words..."River Tara so pure you can drink Tara"
  • I want to call Vlaltko Dracula for no apparent reason
  • in testing my blood I can say, "Firenze a sanguinare per voi"
  • beef carpaccio does not mean the same thing in all restaurants
  • The Boboli Gardens are closed on the last Monday of the month
  • Pinocchio is everywhere [Italian writer and journalist Carlo Lorenzini, under his pen name Carol Collodi, wrote The Adventures of Pinocchio in 1881. Carlo was born in Florence, Via Taddea 25]
  • prosecco and limoncello make a fine summer drink!
