We went inside the next day and travelled to the top of doumo, quite a dizzying journey, but well worth it.
Florence at night was beautiful.
My brain hurts too much to type more, but hopefully the pictures give an idea of how beautiful Florence was. I will update with part two of florence sometime soon. O, and the significance of the title of the post: The cupola of the duomo is covered with graffiti, mostly japanese/chinese, but one of them was poetic and lonely and i immediately fell in love.
