Buongiorno, signorina! To quote many American toddlers during football season, “Touchdown!” Greetings from Milan. I’m just getting settled in my hotel, but I couldn’t let a little jet lag and delirium (Italy is 9 hours ahead of the U.S. West Coast) stand between me and the Web. Are you ready for today’s intercontinental installment of Saturday Surfing?
I’ve only been in the city for a few hours, so I haven’t had a chance to explore very much, but the surrounding area is an interesting mix of rural houses, open tracts of land and high-rise buildings.
Lots of green!
…juxtaposed with random buildings like this one named after El Hub, ha ha!
A Milan street
See the rooftop garden across the way?
One of the first things I noticed here was how fashionable folks are. Within the span of 5 minutes, I saw a guy in leather pants with a well sculpted mohawk, another dude in a full-length faux fur, and a woman wearing a pair of crazy sky-high leopard print shoes.
Being fashion challenged myself, I feel like I stick out like a sore thumb, but hey, what can ya do? I just smile and hope for the best.
Have a great day today, and I’ll catch up with you soon. I think I need a quick nap…
Eh, it can wait a few minutes. Surf’s up!
