Milan, shopping, sun, sumptuous, sexy and solitary
Trip Start Aug 16, 2005

The first few days in Milan, I wondered what had I done - moving to Milan? I do not speak Italian and so far they do not speak Inglezce!
My choice of apartments was limited, since the catchphrase I heard too often 'well it IS august Madame'. Yes I came to Milan in August when nothing happened yes in Paris some shops had closed down, office barely full in Milan the office had only 15 out of the normal 120 working. The first hotel I tried to make a reservation replied 'sorry we cannot make the reservation as for the holiday season we will be closed in the month of august' wow, a hotel even shut!
