27 Mar

Today we went into the Accademia. The pieces of work are unexplainable. It was very strange to see the pieces of marble with people “coming out” of them. It seriously did look like people imprisoned in the marble and Michelangelo was the one to free them. The “David” was crazy! So life like! Michelangelo even went to the lengths to include the veins in his hands and arms, neck too. I bought a guide to the Accademia to just see all of the artwork again. I also bought some postcards and a hand painted name from a vendor on the street. You spelled your name for her and she painted it on the spot for you.

Tomorrow is our last day here. I think I might phone mom and dad tonight.
