Architectural Design One-Year Course (#7) – Edwin M.

On Sunday Daniella and I wanted to be a bit productive, so I looked up some cafes to go to sit down and do some work. The place we been to before was closed so I found another cafe called Ditta Artigianale. This coffee shop had cold brew coffee and I was super excited because one thing I definitely miss back home is ice coffee. The interior of the place was also really cool so the atmosphere for working was a great vibe. On Monday later in the afternoon we went on a walk and we past by my favorite bar here in Florence “Lions Fountain” and I ordered a Hugo and one of the college wall shots. Tuesday and Wednesday was an easy day. But Thursday we went to a bunch of Vintage stores and it was very hard not to get any clothes. Friday we had our art visit and on Saturday we went to Viareggio. Spent all day on the beach, got some food from a boat, and gelato while walking down the board walk. Sunday we stayed in and personally I covered up from the sun cuz I am in fact burnt.
