One terrific tourist view - there's a rose garden half way up to San Miniato al Monte - I don't remember it from the past, but it's quite peaceful ... But what happened to the big cat colony that used to hang out on these steps??
Then back in the city itself, a reminder that one needs to destroy in order to create (but does that destruction include painting over earlier graffiti?);
... some cheruns getting tangled up in a sculpted curtain (in the Palazzo Medici Riccardi);
a stray crocodile;
and a listening ear.
