You Can Feel It... It's (Space) Electronic

Today was our free day to roam around Florence. I bought a scarf for Lindsay and a red shirt for myself to wear to the dance club tonight. I also ate a LOT of gelato. Amaretto and Tiramisu flavors are good, but pistachio still takes the cake. We were supposed to go on a guided tour of the city, but the tour guide was way too quiet, and so I ended up skipping the tour in favor of running around with Melanie, Terry and Jordana. I saw the Duomo and found the Scudieri Candy/Pastry shop. I work with a couple who went to Italy the previous summer, and their last name is Scudiere... turns out, the man is related to (cousins or something) the family who owns this little shop right in the central plaza near the Duomo.
After shopping, we went to the optional tuscan dinner.
After dinner was our night at the space electronic disco. The club had a reputation for being terribly cheesy, and it was. It was another place where all sorts of contiki groups gather, and the drinks were very overpriced. We all managed to have a great time drinking and dancing though. At the end of the night, we had to take taxis back to the campsite. I ended up getting a ride with Mike, Brendon, Paul and Sandro. We asked the guy to drop us off a little before the campsite so we woudln't have to pay him for the full fare, but he charged us the full fare anyway. Supposedly we'd agreed to that at the beginning of the trip (which I don't recall, but I was a little buzzed). In any event, we made it home safely and went to bed before our trip to Rome the next morning.
