We awake this morning, to a brisk and crisp Florentine winter's day - the last day of the year 2013.
Our new, favourite restaurant "The Touch", is booked out for this evening "Been booked out for months!" says our host Max. I don't know why I'd thought there would be any other outcome.
So we decide that we'll eat at home and then wander down to the Piaza del' Duomo where all the action is likely to be.
So, off to the meat market that we found last week. The meat market is worth a para or two.

See what a Sensitive New Age Guy I am? I did think about Su's vegan dietary requirements - I could have bought a plain pork roast, without any oranges or herbs!
Anyway, the roast is now reserved for New Year's day.

STOP NEWS: we viewed an apartment this afternoon at Via Dei Benci,19 (check out Google maps!) It's a beauty - it meets all of our list of 12 Important Apartment Requirements, (that we should have made up before this) and we will probably, almost certainly, take it. More news later.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!
p.s. Our first guest arrives on Friday 3rd Jan 2014
