Both my tragic getaway and the first semester at The Florence Academy of Art were coming to a close. England, snow and Christmas beckoned. So, in a festive farewell mission, friends gathered at Livi’s for a final supper.
This was not the standard turkey, sprouts and roast potatoes. No, our meal was a collision of countries – Venezuelan rice, Tuscan sausage, Sicilian salad, American fried chicken (and American cooked ricotta gnocchi) & English Apple crumble – a marvelous multi-cultural feast.

The following day (my last), Livi and some of her housemates took me sight-seeing. Though I’d done a bit of exploring, being shown the city by locals made all the difference. On the menu was the Uffizi Gallery, the Palazzo Vecchio and the Boboli gardens.
