I went back to Florence in September to visit old friends and past teachers. I lived and studied in Florence for 5 years. It is always nice to visit Florence, but many of my friends and colleagues have moved away recently. I do miss Florence at times but I dont miss the fact that the people you get to know keep leaving once their time there is up. That can get depressing. But its nice there how its such a small city that you always run into someone you know every day you walk around.
