Ho camminato per Firenze questa mattina. Ho fotografato il mio viaggio. Ho camminato attraverso Ponte A.Vespucci e vicino Piaza Stazione. Ho comprato un paio di regali per la mia famiglia e una rivista di moda arte per me. Ora vado a pisa con ragazze del grupo. Spero che Brittany si sente presto!
I walked through Florence this morning. I photographed my journey. I walked across A.Vespucci Bridge and near the train station. I bought a couple of gifts for my family and a fashion art magazine for myself. Now I'm going to Pisa with some girls from the group. I hope Brittany feels better soon!
The old Florentine belief is that if you bring a padlock to the old horse hitching posts near the river and toss the key in the river, your true love will last forever. Some also believe that if you bring a padlock to the river, true love will find you. Sometimes, the city sends someone to break all the locks and "clear" the horse hitching posts. Inevitably, the padlocks of True Love keep returning ... there is no stopping love! This is the American equivalent of carving lovers names into a tree. Such a simple, romantic gesture.
