6 things I have learned in my first 6 days of being in Florence:
1) Italian. food. rocks.
2) It's Italy. Don't count on it. [It doesn't matter what 'it' is referring to.]
3) Good balsamic vinegar is always worth the price.
4) Coffee is a beautiful thing.
5) Don't open washer machine doors if you can see water anywhere still inside. Just don't.
6) It's Italy. Don't worry about it!
