Milano Outing #3
October 8, 2013 § Leave a comment
You know it’s not going to be the best day when it takes you five attempts to make a cup of coffee- and the one that you finally settle on still has a layer of black coffee grinds floating on top of the not-hot-enough soy milk.
Next time I will listen to my coffee and not be too ambitious.
In my mind, the only logical conclusion for any day off school is Milano Day. So, that’s what I did. I had bad coffee and greasy cookies for breakfast and then hopped on the train (after a long wait because I just missed the previous train, of course). I’ll spare the long list of Things That Did Not Go Well today, and instead just put up more-mainstream-than-usual photos of today.
Mainly, I just walked around in circles (with big radii) and admired fruity statues:
, pretended to be a trolley and followed the cable lines:
, ducked into little alleys and nooks when a cloud-less rainstorm swept through the city:
, saw the Duomo in daylight for the first time:
, crossed at red lights (a lot):
, zig-zagged through streets after the rain:
, and tried to finish the day on a good note with a glass of wine by the fountains on top of a fancy piazza:
Time to brew a cup of herbal tea, put on fuzzy socks, and crawl under the covers. A domani.
