Flag of Italy  , Lombardy,
Sunday, May 24, 2009

We decided to skip the early train and utilize our late checkout in Florence, the only problem being, we did not have a seat on the 2 hour trek to Milan.  We stood and it was actually ok, because we met some folks in a similar situation.

Once in Milan we found out how hot Italy can get with temps around 90-95 degrees with humidity.   Our hotel/hostel was a big step down from Florence and we were both a little let down, but the front desk was nice enough so we cannot complain.

After a nap we met cousin Mike for pizza and beer.  9 liters of beer to be exact.  Although Mike had to leave after the 6th because he had school in the AM.  Chris and I closed the place down and went back to the hotel where he passed out and I made some skype calls.

We slept until 3pm the next day, badly in need of some rest.  Instead of going out in the heat we stayed in the room and caught up with emails until we met Mike for dinner around 8:30.  Mike took us to a wonderful little place where the owner was extremely polite and gracious.  Most importantly the food was excellent, and the wine was a nice compliment.  It was great seeing Mike for the first time in quite a while, and he was very nice to take time out of his finals week to show us around.  Tomorrow it is off to Munich to meet up with Buddy!
