anderson ospitale entrance portalThe morning after the games was spent (for some) sleeping in and soaking up the ambiance of the Residence Mugello. After check-out, we left our bags at the hotel and had a few hours for some last minute shopping. Several knives were purchased as gifts as well as other assorted souvenirs.

We boarded a public bus and began the one-hour ride back to Florence. Once again, while we were not very far away in terms of miles, we all felt that we had journeyed far.

Back in the Ospitale, there was a general consensus that laundry needed to be done. We will keep tomorrow low-key as we recover from our excursion with some studio time and individual student conferences.
