Firenze

A couple weekends back Raja & I drove down to Florence & stayed for two nights in the city-a short walk from the famous Ponte Vecchio. I didn't get much drawing done, we had just enough time to relax & take in the sights of this beautiful city.

We had a look inside the Duomo but didn't go up-the queue was too long! Instead we toured the Palazzo Vecchio.


We found the famous brass boar & rubbed his nose for good luck!

It is not the boar's nose you have to rub to get lucky..It's the fat man's dong you have to rub
