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.

A long day ahead

Posted by kernelbob on August 14, 2009

After about three hours’ sleep, we got up at 03:00 (Athens time).  We’re in the Milano Linate airport now.  Hopping to Frankfurt, then direct to Portland.  Couple of hours in Portland, 2.5 hours driving home.  If all goes well, we’ll get home by 16:00 PDT.  About 21 hours.  If all goes well.
