Wow. Where to start? Monday? Tuesday? Wednesday Morning? WHOA. What a blast these last few days have been. Something seething, something writhing to the surface. Excitement, uncertainty, realization… amazing.

Lets start with Monday, the 9th sunny day in a row in rainy, foggy, Milano. I’d like to invite you to take a walk with me. First we’ll head out from the yellow metropolitan line through the Montenapoleone station. Take some pictures of the exit and off we go, down the main street and into the heart of one of the most expensive districts in Milano. The one place you can go to spend over 1000euro on a pair of jeans. Beautiful girls, beautiful shops, beautiful scenery.

Take a turn and jog down Viale Turrati. Pass the Consulate and take a walk to the local high school. Jog a right, now a left, and we’re back at the metro. Jump on the yellow line to Duomo, tag in at Duomo and switch to the red line M1. Take M1 to Cadorna and take a walk to the closest park. See the design museum and Savoy’s fabled castle… or rather its remnants. Not much survives the vicious war machines that tear through the ages, rubble and cats… ohh yeah… Cats. Back to the Duomo. Snap some random shots and away we go wandering down Viale Torino. Fashion for the girls – long blonde and no faces.

The next day

Tuesday was off to a great start. Rode up north to Verbania. Got some great photos including one of me and the boss! Hope you enjoy. It’s gorgeous and scenic. Michael gave me a book detailing the highlights of the province. We had a very interesting meal with the President of the province, mayor of Verbania comune, and the prefect. It was a blast to say the least. The little towns around the lake and the high Alps towering over are stunning. Did I mention cats yet? There seem to be quite a few popping up all over the place.
