Galileo museum

Today we saw art, sculpures, culture all priceless but most interesting, the Galileo museum. They had contraptions that would calcutate your location would shoot a cannonball at 12:00, would show when planets will be visible,telescopes as big as a cannon and all sorts of things. but the most interesting, Galileo's thumb fore finger and middle all from the right hand.There was even a tooth! How did they get these you might ask? After dying under house arrest Galileo's followers came to his body and got what they could then encased them in jars.

  1. Yay! I finally have caught up on your travels so far. How can Italy ever be bad? I'm glad that you have multiple contributors to your blog for different perspectives.

    You have missed some crazy weather here, going from 84 last Friday to snowing at the beginning of this week. The Chocolate Bar has reopened, though, and I will have a chocolate beverage in your honor this weekend w/ another gal's night out. Looking forward to reading more of your blog!
