A quick overnighter to South Beach, Miami, which reminded me of my time living in Mexico.  I was speaking Spanish on Ocean Drive and loving the “see and be seen” mentality, which of course makes for great people watching!

GIARDINO di BOBOLI & BARDINI. florence

Giardino di Boboli, part of Palazzo Pitti, is a gorgeous and very expansive complex of manicured gardens.  It is a great way to spend a couple of hours, and can be paired with Giardino Bardini to have a great day outside…bring a picnic!

Being away from Boston made me realize how great a city it is!  It’s a fairly small city which makes it very manageable…I’ve been walking almost everywhere, and there is almost no place within the city that can’t be reached in under one hour’s walk.  After living in southern China, the factory capital of the world, I also appreciate a blue sky more & more.  The first day I was back, I kept exclaiming, “Wow, would you look at the sky today?!?!  It’s like a painting!”   A friend is in town visiting, so i played tour guide today.
