First stop PISA




The leaning tower was much more magnificent than I ever thought it would be. It is an architectural wonder whether it leans or not.




The Russian... no comment. ;)



Tuscany pants color, and the Italians wield their artistic flare masterfully. Warm hues and an excessive attention to detail pour over eyes like wine, relaxing and embracing.



The shot of wonder to please the man...



In the piazza, worlds of ancient beauty had my head spinning. Cafe anyone?
