This is why we chose Florence to make our base home!  The Pass!  With this pass we can go into a lot of different museums whenever you want and as much as you want.  Today we went to the Accademia Gallery where Michelangelo’s David is located.  I spent quite awhile just taking it all in.  It is so perfect!  And we can, and will, go back as much as we want!  There other art works there also, but they pale next to David.  Some unfinished sculptures of Michelangelo’s are there which show you how the bodies emerge as he is sculpting.  I am a little bit irritated that we can not take pictures.  I think they want you to buy those picture books  in the bookstore.  I could have taken some really good pictures of David.  Darn!
