We made it safe and sound!

We made it to our apartment in Florence, Italy safe and sound!  We look a little more weary than we do in these pictures my Dad took as we left!  Our apartment is nice – a little larger than we were expecting and it seems to be very quiet!  The internet works perfectly, so feel free to call our magicjack number.  The phone works very well!  (Remember, we are six hours ahead of you!)  The only downside to the apartment is that it is up 61 steps – yes, sixty-one.  No elevator!  And the final flight of 15 or so steps is like climbing the Alpe D’Huez.  It’s steep and unforgiving.  We are going to be in great shape when we return.  I ventured to a grocery store with a map, a backpack, and an italian dictionary.   I spent about ten minutes trying to determine which milk was skim or whole milk.  Turns out the “skim” is like 2%.  Tomorrow, we have a day full of orientation meetings and a walking tour of the city.
