Firenze: Late Winter/Tardo Inverno

Just a few observations from my daily foot commute, as I wiggle back home from La Pira to Azeglio.

How to Spot the Italian:

  1. Large, large scarf wrapped about neck. Like, an afghan-level scarf. Seriously, I have sofa throws smaller than those things.
  2. Handsfree wire cleverly woven around and through said afghan so that Italian can mutter into scarf unabated while walking on sidewalk.
  3.  Shiny fitted pants.
  4. Bedazzled boots.
  5. Nice sunglasses. Minimum 200 euros.
  6. Carrying a motorino helmet.
  7. Screaming into cellphone in full argument on street.
  8. Really nice blowout.
    Occhiali di sole + piega!
  9. Serious purse.
  10. Shoes always look brand new.
