Florence is the city where my heart resides….
I’ve loved the past few days following the rhythm of this place. The cobbled streets, the buildings, people and the road to my apartment along Via de Palmerino. I’m staying in an apartment new to me. It’s on the second floor at Residenza del Palmerino and I share the kitchen with Federica, her husband and son.
It’s a pleasure to spend time with the three of them as they welcome me into their home like family. The road leading from the bus to their home is one of my favourite walks. I took this video this morning on my way home from the market.
You’ll be pleased to know, I’ve been working (a little) on my book and taking in the sights and flavours of Florence (a lot).
Funny thing about Italy, when you come here to work, the overwhelming charm of the county seduces you to walk, experience, take-in.
It’s not as easy to work as I thought it would be.
Last night I met with Monica and Donatella at restaurant for an aperitivo (drink and appetizer).
We enjoyed a leisurely visit, then slipped away for gelato at our favourite little place outside the city centre.
