After touring the gardens, and later the Uffizi, my friends and I went to the leather market. It was a little overwhelming at first with all of the street vendors harassing me, but I quickly got the hang of things. I learned not to settle for the price they offer you, you have to haggle a little. I got a leather wallet for my brother for ten euro cheaper than the selling price. I also tried to haggle for a leather journal… it was a complete fail. The vendor called me a bloody fool for trying to get the journal for only three euro cheaper. I walked away because I was so embarrassed.
As my time here is coming to an end, I look back on this experience with such fondness. This trip has truly been life changing. As cheesy as it sounds, I've made some life-long friends on this trip and I can’t wait for all the memories we will continue to make.
Ciao for now!
