Day 35: Rest Day in Milan August 4
We slept until 10am!!! Didn't get out until after 11! By the time we went out it was time for lunch. So we headed over to a little restaurant recommended by the hotel. We had risotto and linguini in Milan! Then we headed back to the train station to get an all day ticket so we could go wherever we wanted. We rode the trams all day. They look similar to the cable cars in San Fransisco. They were built about 100 years ago and did not get destroyed in WWII when the Germans bombed Milan. A nice lady told us their history while we rode to the Duomo, she was very proud of them you could tell. In our tour of Milan we saw the Duomo, the castle,the Central Park, the arch, the Galleria, gawked at the high fashions(which is so just a throw back to the 70s this year) and ate gelato. We went food shopping for tomorrow. Got SIM cards for the phones. Went out for apperitivo for dinner again. Got train tickets for tomorrow to Lodi to get us out of the city. Relaxed and watched some BBC and CNN to see what is going on in the world. And finally fell asleep around midnight. What a day!
The World is Ours!
