Aujourd'hui ce termine mon aventure en Italie! Mais quelle aventure de reve! La quantites de choses que j'ai apprise, les idees que j'ai acquises et surtout les gens que j'ai connu ont fait de ce voyage un moment inoubliable ! I just left Milano where I took my last course of coffee and I loved it !

The other place we wanted to see was the Dumo Cathedral. Yet another truly amazing sight of craftmenship, all by hand, no machinery here. Just so huge and detailed. We were lucky we were there in the shoulder season as the line was a good 40min wait, hate to be there in the heat of the summer waiting. Inside was just as awe inspiring. Such beautiful stainglass windows and ...
