Piazzale Michelangelo and Santa Croce Church
After close to two hours we finally exited the complex and headed back to the grocery store we'd found on our way here to replenish our supplies. The fee to enter the church was well worth the cost and we still will use the same ticket to view the home of Michelangelo; it is closed on Monday.
Reaching the apartment about three o'clock we took advantage of some free time and rested. Later I walked to the local store to look for a plastic spatula to use with our brand new Teflon skillet. I think the apartment has recently been refurbished as all of the dishes and pots are brand new; but no spatula. Also miss the microwave but find that the frozen vegetables are actually better when cooked on the stove.
We did some hand wash this morning and hung it on the lines outside our windows...it was still damp this afternoon and as I took it down I dropped a sock. It landed on the lines two floors down. I walked down and was surprised to find an American couple from Sacramento, California who'd just arrived. They retrieved the sock for me. We enjoyed chicken tonight with our dinner; Jim does the cooking and I clean up afterwards. We have one of the clever cabinets where I put the wet dishes in a rack that has a pan on the bottom; used in place of drying the dishes with a towel.
I think we'll enjoy a game of hand and foot tonight. I hope you enjoy the slideshow...sorry...a bit more photos than I usually have but just had to share them with you...Ciao
