We trained into Milan today from the local train station of Olgiate-calco-bivio, we even managed to change from the regional rail system to the Metro Underground. The bonus was the view as you leave the Metro into the middle of the square outside the Duomo, just fantastic. What a vision its pearly-white façade, adorned with 135 spires and over 3000 statues. Very hard to take it all in in the hot of today. We also visited the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele shopping arcade with it wonderful mosaic tile floor and soaring iron and glass roof where we found the World of Leonardo da Vinic exhibition with working models of some of his inventions. Just out the door from here we came across the Ferrari Store (not the car shop just the merchandise shop but Greg sure did have fun). Then it was off to the food and wine emporium of Peck. This is a food loves institution and their deli first opened its doors in 1883. Great late lunch of cured meat and cheese with a lovely glass of wine was had. On the way home we almost where the victims of a pick-pocketa. As we were getting on the underground at Central Station Greg felt someone underdone the button on his back pocket and removed his wallet, Greg confront the women she dropped his wallet to the ground and played dumb – all items still in it so lucky.
