Journal Entry:
Walked to the Dumo, wandered arround inside, paid to climb the 500 stairs to the top. Sperctacular view, windy and very cold. Was going to walk along the river, but opted to head back to the pension for more clothes. After rugging up headed to the Accadamie to see David et al. Next walked along the river, walked accross the Ponte Vecchio, and found a rowing club! Hiked down along the river to get to the enterance to the club, managed to convice the manager (?) of the club that I (a) qualified, and (b) wanted to row. He said if the weather permitted I should come back tomorrow at 10am. I can't wait.

The rest of the day was spent doing laundry and drinking winer (at the same time).
