1 day in Florence

Checked inyo hotel in Firenze.
Visited a Pakistani eatery. Had Doner kabab and rice plate. Those guys spoke fluent Italian. Hindi songs were playing on Tv. They said they visit home once in 3 years. Their familoes are in Pakistan. I came to know there is a Gujrat in Pakistan as well.
Very nice hostel albeit too crowded. One room shared with 4 more girls.

2 Canadian girls also shared our room. They were fresh college graduates. Without much money. But funny thing is they didnot need a visa! While we were earning far more in India, and yet we had to prove we werent there to grab jobs in Europe!

We started a free tour in Florence. The tour guide was boring. Switched and we found the other tour guide was boring too. It was like a history class. I couldnt be much attentive. So aftee the Renaissance tour, we fled from the Medici tour halfway and started shopping.

Florence is a fashion district. Gucci had his first shop here. He was a shoemaker 150 years back on these streets. Qe saw Michaelangelos house too. They dry clothes just like us. On the outside with rods and ropes.
We saw the  vasari corridor. Bought gold earring below vasari corridor on the bridge. Bought ltalian jackets gloves snd belt. Found more ppl talked in english here than in Rome.
