Picture + 100 Words: Heads Will Roll

Palazzo VecchioWe finally find a place to sit near Palazzo Vecchio. We’re overwhelmed by the heat, the tourists and Florence itself. We sit here in the Loggia della Signoria, next to Perseus who is a bit imposing.

A man sits next to us, points at Perseus and asks in broken English, “bad guy?”

“Excuse me?” my husband replies.

“Bad guy,” he repeats pointing at the statue towering over us. “Cut off his head,” as he mimes slashing his throat with his finger.

Tired by the thought of explaining Medusa in basic English we smile, nod and say, “yes, bad guy.”
