Day 10:  Florence

Honorary Aussie indeed.  I woke up 20 minutes before departure, still wearing my clothes from the night before and with my contacts still in.  Plus my right hip hurt so much that I was limping all day.  I was later told that I fell out of my cabin.  The good thing is that I got 9 hours of sleep so I feel fine.

Nice walking tour of Florence.  Saw tombs of Michelangelo and Galileo.  Dinner was excellent.  But at Space Electronic (disco catering to Contiki-style groups) I wasn't in the mood for dancing since my body was too beaten up.  So a few of us left early and took a taxi home.

After I went to bed I was awakened by my cabin shaking violently and Josh yelling repeatedly for Mick (they had the other half of the cabin).  It was more funny than annoying.
