dear americans in florence,

yes, you.

the very ones who make no effort to learn more than 7 words in italian, and care nothing about italian culture. you who came here with no intention of learning, but just to say "you've been" to florence, to europe, to wherever. wasting your money to get shit-faced every night or to spend ridiculous amounts on stupid things you can easily buy back in america. why are you here? how can you waste an opportunity like this?

it makes me sad that there are people who would give almost anything to be in your position, and you're here just wasting it.

dear david,

i can't wait to share our travel adventures in just 37 days.

everything reminds me of you, and it doesn't help that you share a last name with the george washington of italy:

i can't wait for our train rides together seeing beautiful things along the way like this:

(although i'm guessing there won't be much snow...)

i know this isn't your favorite holiday, but i like it because i spend it thinking of you.

even if we are 6000 miles apart.

see you in paris ♥
