The Chronicles of Florence, Part VII – David

Florentines have really long names for everything.

Such as: the Accademia di Belle Arti Firenze.

…I went with the dreaded tour group.

It was cool, though, because we go these little things that let the tour guide talk into a microphone connected to personal earbuds so we could hear him talk but no one else would have to endure the screaming of two dozen tour guides in any room at any moment in time.

That picture probably wasn’t the best to put first. But heh, halfayearope hardly paid any attention to aesthetics in the past, why should I start now?

We weren’t allowed to take pictures of the David.


He was really big. Like, really big. And he had giant hands. It wasn’t breathtaking, since, again, I don’t have the mental capacity to render a piece of artwork breathtaking, but was pretty cool.
