This morning was another easy start, then a quick drive to Stanstead Airport for our Ryanair flight to Pisa. The 737-800 had slightly more legroom than the Airbus, but the whole plane was cattleclass and there were no seat assignments; you simply grab the first seat you can. There wasn't any entertainment on the flight. You don't expect much when you pay 1p per person (plus airport costs.) All up the return flight for 2 cost us GB£67.00.
I read my book. Werner von Braun is now in White Sands and is suddenly not a Nazi, and Chief Designer Korelov is out of the Gulags and nabbed 2000 minor scientists and technicians to be shipped to Moscow.
Bruno met us at Pisa and brought us to Florence. My first thought when I saw my room in Hotel David was "Bloody hell it's HUGE!" I could lay across the bed and still not hang over any sides. The Monsters won't get me tonight.
Aaron insists we get a pizza from down the road. Looks like it's dinner time. Tomorrow we do a Factory Tour, after that it'll be 3 days of Touristing.
*It was actually the bridge before the present one. The new Ousebridge (pronounced "Ooze bridge") was built in 1820
