Milan

Posted by kernelbob on August 14, 2009

We’ve had a lot of fun on this trip and done some wonderful stuff.  However, visiting Milan was not one of them.  First, it’s hot here.  32° C (90° F) and most buildings are hotter inside.

Secondly, the city is on vacation this month.  The city is especially on vacation this weekend, because today, 15.8, is a national holiday, celebrating the assumption of the Virgin.  Last night we walked for an hour looking for an open restaurant.  (We finally found one.)

Nonetheless, the National Museum for Science and Technology Leonardo da Vinci was a good find.  We saw models of many of Leonardo’s inventions and some other exhibits, including a recreation of a circa 1950 steelworks.

    Hey you! We were in Sacramento, returning with a U Haul. Don’t ask. We will save our stories for drinks 🙂 After unloading Mel and siblings stuff, then organizing, we collapsed for 3 or more days. I am back in the swing!

    So glad you are blogging. Mel was in Italy during August 🙂 Can’t wait to catch up and read the rest of your blog!
