A change from the usual

Day 7
We decided NOT to go anywhere near the city centre. Headed to the Mercato Centrale instead. It is the market for produce, and nice to see the stall people engaging with the locals, sharingnews, recipes, whatnot. Even a non-shopper like Souvik was impressed with the artistic presentations of vegetables, meats, cheeses, pasta and flowers.

Next stop: Profurmo Farmaceutico, the ancient pharmacy that sells remedies for hysteria and other exotic ailments, as well as beauty stuff for dogs and cats. Adorable!
Living in the city centre means that we can beat the afternoon heat by staying indoors; we take full advantage .
Then a bus ride out of the central area to Piazzale Michelangelo for fabulous views of Florence. This seems to be the prime spot for bride & groom pictures, coz we saw at least half a dozen of those pretty brides in their gorgeous dresses.

Day 7 - Piazzale Michaelangelo

Day 7 - Piazzale Michaelangelo-6

And I bought myself a typical hand-painted ceramic platter (for adding a touch of elegance to my desserts). Happy happy 🙂
