We just got back from our 7 day Mediterranean cruise. It stopped at 5 ports, but only 4 due to weather conditions, but that’s not what I am talking about now. So, let me give you a little background. I had been to Florence, Italy in the year 2001 and now, 15 years later, I am HAPPY TO TELL YOU it is STILL beautiful, magical, and as vibrant as I remember.
So aside from the usual monuments which are incredible to anyone visiting, whether your first time or not, there is something new to the city. And as much as I am against meaningless tagging and graffiti, this “street art” was just too fun for me to pass up. It all started at the beginning of our walking tour with Sam.
You can read more about him here http://samtheguide.it/ and one of the fellow walkers was taking a picture of something on a wall, so I walked over to him and saw why he was taking a photograph. As the tour went on, he and I would point out spottings of this “street artist” and snap snap away we did.
After returning to ship, I did a little internet surfing and found the name of this artist is BLUB – and let me tel you, to ask what the BLUB is that over there, is to just add to the mystery, magic and truly explosive art scene in Florence, Italy.
