Florence for 5 days. This part of my trip has some random fun moments then it gets a bit dull as i have seen some attractions in florence before and I am going to wait to go when we return with the four other girls I will be with in a month. So I got there and met with Jonatan the boy I met four years ago. He took me to a party at a hotel where I was in heaven. Could I have asked for anything more than to be surrounded by good looking Italian men. I then talked to the bartender Riccardo, who is from Florence and has been to Spain for 8 months and studied in Holland. He was very attractive and I exchanged numbers so I would have someone to play with the next day. Plus he has a moto, which I have never rode on. So Jonatan took me home and I have yet to hear from him. Haha, scarred an Italian boy away, is that possible. He has a girlfriend for the past 6 months and was saying itlian women are a bit crazy. Its weird that the Italian women are very unimpressed by Italian men and more hard to get. But the next day Riccardo took me out for an apartivo, a drink which has bar food too...which is better than our buts and pickled eggs some bars provide for munchies. Appartently I tried to speak to him in italian and even spanish but i would mix them up and he just told me to speak in english, haha how sad...atleast i am trying. We rode on his moped and took me to the "romantic" spot in florenze, piazza michalangelo, which overlooks the whole town. We rode by a vending machine close to his place after and it was like a mini grocery store vending machine that you can drive thru, pretty impressive..there was prepared pasta dishes. riccardo is studying physchology and was a very sweet guy, i will hopefullly meet up with him when i get back with my girls to florence. the rest of the nights i wondered town getting lost in florence which is hard to do cause it's pretty small but I still managed to do so. I searched for the cheapest cappaccino cause I am obsessed with them and found one ofr 1.10 euro. They place where I stayed was a homeless shelter in the winter time and they hostel in the summer. The people who ran it were very hospitable young kids. it was a very quiet hostel though, but was very good location and legit considering i only payed 4€ a membership and didnt have to pay for the rest of the nights. pretty sweet deal. well i left for milan on the 25th hoping my friend shelby who has just got in will be on the train to meet me there!
