fun facts about milan:

  • it’s official name is comune di milano
  • it’s located in the lombardy region of italy
  • letizia moratti is the mayor
  • it has 1,308,311 people
  • st. ambrose is it’s patron saint
  • and you can celebrate milan day on december 7

and of course it will be my home for 6 days (most of which will be work, but i’ll get a bit of time to check out the doumo[the second largest gothic cathedral in the world] and the davinci mural painting the last supper [make sure you read the fun bit about damage and restoration]).

after spending some time in milano, i will be off to cinque terre:

cinque terre consists of 5 villages in western italy on the mediterranean.  i will stay in the village of monterosso al mare for the bulk of 3.5 days i will be there – exploring the castles, church’s, hiking trails and cafes and generally just drinking a lot of wine and eating seafood till i turn into a calamari.

i can’t f’ing wait.
