Within fifteen minutes we were standing in a pack of people edging our way forward very slowly to the front of the Duomo where the parade of fancy dressed soldiers had already arrived with the cart; unhooked the two white oxen who'd pulled it from another church through the streets with a parade of 150 soldiers and musicians. That had happened much earlier in the morning while we were at church.

We went back out this afternoon and ended up with 5.25 miles for the day...very, very cold outside. Walked to Dante's house and then to the Duomo...got inside to "pray" and then walked the long way home. While crossing the bridge Jim's hat sailed into the river...you'll see several photos of it floating away. Opportunity to buy a new hat!
