I'm glad my daughter is studying in Florence, Italy. Of all the places in the world -to study abroad-, this is the place I would want her to be. This is THE PLACE. Not only is it gorgeous - and provincial - like in a fairy tale, it is also easy to get around in by just walking. It also seems relatively safe. And the food is delicious, and you can drink the water.
It really seems to be 'the land of enchantment'. (Or is that New Mexico?)
Anyway, I'm feeling good about her being here. And I am so very glad I was able to come over and check it out for myself.
