In my absolute boredom last night I was looking through all the photos I took in December. These are of Milan. I have wanted to put up these two for a while now. I really like them.
I was in Milan for Christmas and even though the town was completely shut on the 25th, I had a really nice time. Thanks, especially to Pan and TPF. We attended midnight mass at the Duomo on Christmas Eve and it was beautiful. I didn’t understand much of what was happening – the mass was in Italian after all – but just the experience of being there was special.
Other highlights included amazing Kinder gelato, getting my photo taken on a Vespa (finally!!). And of course, seeing The Last Supper. It is amazing. Like most of Da Vinci's works (and I can happily say I have seen almost all his paintings) it has a strange mesmerising quality to it. And it was special even after the Renaissance art overload I had in Florence. Brilliance.
Sigh. Good Times. Now I just want to run away from school.
