Sherman’s Lagoon (4/17/10)

When my wife and I visited Florence for the second leg of our honeymoon, we found that we were staying quite close to the Museum of Medieval Torture. The place was marked by a placard warning people not to descend a set of narrow stairs, lest they recoil in horror. We didn’t visit the museum because it didn’t seem like the kind of place that catered to recently married couples, but we did walk by it dozens of times. Thankfully, medieval torture has been relegated to museums and is not part of daily life in Florence. Cheese, on the other hand, continues to thrive.
