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 ! I'm actually very sad to leave this beautiful country and all my friends here, who knows when I will see them again? but it's now time ...

... stores like Prada, Gucci and Armani! It must have looked obvious we couldn't afford anything as the lady shop assistant in Gucci watched us like hawks!! If you have to ask how much something is, then you can't afford it! I don't know how anyone can justify spending so much money on a handbag or pair of shoes, and some of them aren't even that nice!! It is a beautiful shopping arcade though, so if you're going to fork out that sort of dosh, this is the place to do it! ...
