We're here- we made it! Almost missed the flight in Chicago because what we were told and reality for flight times didn't quite match up. I got my exersize running through the airport. Slept most of the way over. Brian and I are in our hotel in Florence (Brian is complaining about the humidity, we've both gotten so used to Colorado's dry air.) Yes it's true- Italian drivers really are crazy (and they shout and wave their hands just like in the movies). Bummin around Florence tomorrow, then on to the villa- we'll keep you posted.
