Your best travel dish
Don't Even Think About It

During a trip to Florence Italy, a tour guide mentioned the amazing hot chocolate served at the Rivorie Cafe in the Piazza della Signoria. Ian was overly excited and insisted that we check it out. I have a major disdain for "touristy" locations and usually try to avoid them all together. Ian, on the other hand, was quite insistent that we go.
Reaching the entrance required fighting through throngs of tourists. Actually locating a space at the counter was only achieved by my son's single-minded quest for hot chocolate. We all huddled around the small space while trying to order in broken Italian. Given that the majority of people seemed to be ordering hot chocolate, I'm not sure if we really communicated with the waiter or he just brought it by default. Whatever the reason, both Ian and my daughter were happy.
As I enjoyed the elation on my son's face, I snapped this image while asking if I might try a sip. From his expression, you can probably guess the answer.
