Milan arrival was great. Unfortunately rain showers covered the area. Tomorrow I'm hoping we'll have a great view of the terrain in the area. The sky on top was incredible.
An hour to the hotel, a 2 hour nap and we were off to see the sights-- yes, in the pouring rain. A subway to Duomo, a walk through a Cathedral, browsed the finest shops-- all was beautiful, and worth the walk in the rain. Rain is a good thing. More people should go out and play in it.
Indoor market, that appears outdoor, very cool.
The Cathedral was amazing. Ornate carvings. Detailed stained glass windows. Massive. Impressive. A must see. By the time we returned to our hotel, it was just before 5 p.m. and we were starving. But in Italy, it's a challenge to find dinner before 7 p.m. We ventured back into the rain and found a charming cafe and ate pizza. A fun day and night.
Tomorrow morning an early wake up and we fly to New York. A four hour sit. Then I deadhead to Seattle. An exhausting trip-- but each day I'm thankful I have this fantastic opportunity to fly an incredible plane, work for a great company, and see a little bit of our beautiful world. Then I get to go home to a wonderful family. Life is good.
Enjoy the journey!
