Photo Blog: A Party and A Break

After four busy days in a row, today we took a break and hung out around the house. Ashley took some time to read a book and I spent time playing some games, walking around the house and taking a few photos. Then in the evening, we had a small party with some family that lives in the city of Florence, as well as some international guests that were staying with Geraldina -- Vincent from the US, Sandra from Spain, and Anastasia from Russia -- all of which are studying Italian here over the summer.

Tomorrow we will head to the sea where there may not be Internet connectivity -- therefore I may not update this site until Tuesday. Here are some pictures from our relaxing day and the party:
