BONUS day 96 (part 1): Sunrise

I woke up early, walked across the city, encountered a number of drunks still wandering their way home, and went to the Piazzale Michelangelo for sunrise. It was spectacular to watch the sky light up. It was cloudy so I didn't entirely see the sun rise, but instead saw the light start to peak through said clouds which made this kind of reddish tint. It was a great start to my last day in Florence.
On Ponte Alle Grazie approx. 6am

Time to climb

Midway up and its starting to get light out

The fake "David" statue
Getting even lighter

Sunrise 6:35 am
Anddd its light out!

Had to selfie while all the professional photographers with their Nikons stared at me..
