Auguri 2016 (Best Wishes for 2016) from Florence

We welcomed 2016 at a great, local restaurant called “Il Santo Bevitore.”  And, at midnight (like in most other places around the world), we celebrated with sparklers, music, a conga line, champagne and fireworks.

Below are a few more of our favorite pics from the past couple of days. We took an incredible tour of The Uffizi Gallery (I have the contact info. for a great guide if anybody wants it).  And thanks to sunny days with mild temps, we walked for miles and miles just taking in the sites.  We also relaxed on New Year’s Day by doing just a little more shopping.  

Our week here in this beautiful city is coming to a close.  Meryl will travel home to NYC tomorrow (Sunday) and we’ll fly to Paris where there are thankfully a few more days of fun before the work begins.  Jean & Jerry – we can’t wait to see you guys!
