Ciao! I had this idea to share some snippets of life here in Firenze. As you know, for me this isn't a vacation, as much as it is a return home.
As I navigate this city that I love so much, I thought it would be cool to bring you along for the ride every now & then & share a little of what daily life is like with photos/videos, anecdotes...More than the usual photos of iconic views of Firenze..which I will still be doing of course, but...
Figured, If you can't be here with me in person, I'd still like you to share in this experience as closely as possible.
I’m starting with some of what yesterday looked like. First, I have to tell you that I've been holding onto 1 remaining Italian lesson (for 3 years!) with dear friend & teacher Roberta.
Even when she visited NY last year & offered, I said no...we have to have our last lesson in the place we've had all the rest...Mercato Centrale...which is a mecca for all things food/cibo in Firenze...
And so, yesterday morning we did just that! We met & had our lesson. Mamma mia - glielo, gliela i pronomi combinati - aiutami/help! And I loved every minute of it!!! How did we not get a photo of us Roberta???
Allora, here are some of the sites of this place of deliciosness & how I spent the start of my day. Big Love, PatriciaG
If you’d like to take a twirl with me around the market, check out my video HERE.
If you’re interested in taking Italian classes, Roberta does Skype anywhere around the world. Write me for her contact information. I highly recommend her!!
And...if you’re interested in knowing more about Mercato Centrale: https://www.mercatocentrale.com/florence/
Would love it if you comment, write or ask any questions that you may have.
