Where I stayed
Interestingly, we had no clear directions to our hotel and with my dear mother driving stick shift (for the first time since her 20's when she famously owned a blue mustang with a white convertible top) it made for a comedic, knuckle-whitening experience. With two maps in hand, a couple of close calls with trolleys and some misdirectional driving on one-way streets we made it to our hotel in one piece and had a nice, incidental tour of Milan.
We spent the evening strolling the deserted streets of Milan, since most Milanese leave the city for the month of August, its a relaxed, calm atmosphere and will be a very pleasant place to spend the next day.
I now will post pictures for the last two weeks.
Miss you all,
