Thrown in with the Wolves

 Disclaimer: I'm behind.... your looking about two weeks into the past...

         After our short 24 hour stay in the sleepy town of Ostia, it was on to Florence. I had kept the vast majority of the trip a complete mystery. No Googling, no background research, just skimmed the itinerary once and left the rest up to my imagination to decipher. It's better this way. No preconceived notions, just a new surprise around every corner. As we made our maiden voyage to Florence I could hear the city beyond the white noise of our creaking bus. The mystery was unveiled.
