Jan Sherman sends first reports from Italy
Dr Jan Sherman and Kim Nichols are touring Italy. Dr Sherman has sent the following messages and photographs so far and plans to send more as the tour continues:
We are finally here--after 48 hours of missed connections. Left Memphis at 9 am Friday, arrived Pisa at 6 pm Sunday local time--noon Sunday to you. The luggage arrived much later, but we are all together now. We plan to ignore jet lag and go commune with the leaning tower today.
Hello again from Italy. I'm again at the foot of a tower while Kim climbs. This one is in Lucca [Church of San Michele]. The center of the old city is round--an old Roman amphitheatre, now filled with cafes. We are hoping she'll get a great view of it from up there-only 247 steps. Tomorrow Florence, real name is better: Firenze.
Here is the garden in the Palazzo Pfanner in Lucca:
Will be sending misc. pics as we journey thru Italy. This is Michelangelo's LA PIETA made in the 16th century.
