Florence, Italy: August 2, 2004

  1. Incredibly enough, a plaque on a building opposite Pitti Palace reads: "In this place, from 1868 to 1869, Fyodor Michaelovic Dostoyevsky wrote the novel 'The Idiot.'"

  2. A lovely porcelain dish hanging on the wall outside a shop.

  3. A (arguably failed) ArtShot(tm) of church bells.

  4. A longer view of the same church bells reveals we are right near the Duomo.

  5. Justice and her scales.
