First day in Florence.
Palazzo Medici
San Lorenzo
Medici Chapel

Thinking of Pisa and sketches by Kahn, he probably took off his glasses to sketch. Doing that he would probably get a very abstract vision because his eyes were very bad. I wonder if it's true.
It was raining when [we were] at the palazzo Medici. There were four rain spouts pouring run-off directly into the court. It was very dramatic and sensible...
Mass in San Lorenzo--people are everywhere. The pews are very functional.





Uffizi was shorter than I thought it was from the pictures I have seen. The open arcade at the end was also nicer than expected.
