Whew, this week got away from me, what with catching up on sleep and housework after our trip. But now that I've had the chance to unpack and clean up some, and I slept more than 20 hours this weekend, I want to share some photos as promised.
As I mentioned earlier, our trip to Europe with J's family was cut short by two days, leaving us only 24 hours in Italy. We'd planned three days in Florence, and we knew we wouldn't be able to fit in even all the highlights in one day, so we decided to save Florence for another trip. That decision was even easier with our flights rebooked to have us land in Pisa, instead of Florence.
So we spent Tuesday afternoon in Pisa, which is an ugly, worn-down city with not much to do except see the Square of Miracles. But the Tower and Cathedral are interesting enough that I'd still say Pisa is worth half a day.

|The obligatory holding-up-the-tower photo|
|A view from inside to show how crooked it is|
|Pausing on the way up|
|The Duomo, the Baptistery and the lawn|
|It was cloudy and hazy, so we couldn't see the countryside.|

We had only enough time in Florence to eat dinner, sleep and see the Accademia and Michelangelo's David before catching a flight to Switzerland.
|A typical Tuscan burger: Chianina beef, Fontina cheese and no bun|
|No photos allowed at the Accademia. This guy was in a courtyard outside.|
