After wandering through a garden that rivals the
one in Much Ado About Nothing, we came across this beautiful fountain. Paul wanted to share the experience of being an artist in Florence, so he painted and was eaten alive by mosquitoes just like me! We saw so many beautiful things today — a bride in cream brocade taking pictures in the piazza, paintings in the Uffizi Gallery, and the most beautiful of all — Michelangelo's secret sketches in the Medici chapel. I can't believe more people don't know about
them and there are no photos of them, anywhere. It's his
doodles while hiding out from the Medici —
unfinished glimpses into the mind of a true
genius.
