Florence

Hey!!! How are you all doing there??Just reply me through the comments..hehe..want to know how are you all doing, or mail/chat wit me also can.

Anyway, want to share with you some of the pics of Florence which I went around during my past weekends..Actually, last Sun(1/11), I went to Siena, but didnt have time to transfer the pics yet, but anyhow, these pics were taken on 25th Oct..Went for lunch first, then walked up to Piazzale Michelangelo, and I am sure you all know who is he right? At least you all have seen him before somewhere..hahaha

Piazzale Michelangelo was built in 1869 to plans by Giuseppe Poggi; it offers a splendid panorama of the city. But before that, while we were walking, took some random shots which I would like to share as well..

Myself at Piazza Della Repubblica..Piazza is a square, a big and huge place where people walk, gather..You will see a lot of Piazza in Italy..

My colleague frm Msia, Thileg, giving some donation, because he wants to take pic with him..haha


And while u were walkin on the streets, u will see these drawings around..some are realli 3D..but its awesome art isnt it?


This is what you call "Gelato"...yum yum..melt at your tongue..

Horse carriage..


And here we are, 5 of us, walking pass Ponte Vecchio..how can u not take photo if u pass this place..haha


Myself, and the Ponte Vecchio (bridge)


This picture is nice, but the cranes spoilt the view..


On the way up to Piazzale Michelangelo..rest a while first..hehe


The way...


The climb is tough, but the view is great (adapated from Hanna Montana)...

Myself on the hill top..hehehe

Hui xuan, Yusuf, Thileg and Rizal..huhu..can u see the difference? All with glasses but 2 with normal specs, 2 with shades..

The Ricasoli people...hehe..Ricasoli is where we stay..LOL

Am sure, you all know him..hehe

Another one, taken at Piazza Della Signoria, another replication of Michelangelo..





See the number of people at downtown..crazy huh..I took this pic at Duomo, the big dome..the church
