Florence (Firenze)

We slept in this morning.  All the way to 7:30a.  Had breakfast here at the hotel.   Nice cold breakfast with pastry, meats, ceral, etc.    Took a walk to Eataly and stopped at the cheese store next door.   Bought cheese, cheese, cheese and some other stuff.   Then on to Eataly for chocolate.   Back to the hotel and then walked over to Mailboxes Etc. to ship a bunch of stuff home.    Took a walk over past Gili, loved the Easter windows, and Piazza della Signoria, where the Ufizi is .   Then in the afternoon, walked over past train station and I went to a meeting at St. James Church and Nan went to the famous Farmacia.   Met at corner bistro and walked back to hotel.  Leisurely lounging in the afternoon. (with some laundry)   Hotel suggested Cucina Del La Garga for dinner.  http://www.garga.it/  Walked over.  Beautiful restaurant with lots of comtemporary art on the walls.   Nice, but small, menu.  Nan had a Rocket Salad and I did the Mozzarella with sautéed peppers.  For dinner we split a tagliatelle w/Eggplant in a tomato sauce and a spell pasta with pesto and pistachio.  Desert was a killer cheesecake (the chef’s mother’s 40 year old recipe) and a chocolate tort with salt and olive oil.   Stuffed!  Back to the hotel to pass out.
