Happy Easter from Firenze! Or shall I say Buona Pasqua!!
We are not religious however being in Italy is intense and it makes you feel so close to something powerful. or maybe it's just me. I can't get over the gorgeous scenery. It's stunning and on Easter we were able to be a part of something magical. We went to the Duomo and they do the Scoppio del Carro ("Explosion of the Cart"). It was amazing! There was a medieval parade and they had parts of the mass going on inside playing on loud speakers outside. There were so many people in the streets waiting to see Firenze's fate. It's a tradition dated back to 1097 and if the cart explodes Frienze will have good luck for one year. Lucky for us it exploded and it was beautiful! and loud! holy bajeeebus! I have never been that close to fireworks before. :)
We taped the explosion because words cannot do justice.
We hope you all had a lovely Easter with your families!
