In the last week I did a lot of random explorations. We visited a market by the Arno where I saw chipmunks being sold as pets.

I also finally got to the Mercato Centrale which I was very excited about. It is this big building with tons of meat, cheese and fruit. I took a very special picture of a "pig" for my grandpa so I hope he sees it :)

Construction has been going on in my apartment building all week and it makes me ask myself "why does every place I live have to get torn up?"

I also wandered past the Ospedale degli Innocenti (hospital of the innocents) which was designed by Brunelleschi. The building was an orphanage that took care of abandoned children during the Renaissance. Now it is a museum and I hope to visit someday soon.
