“What is there in Milan anyway? Perhaps we should go somewhere south where the weather is warmer?” Nonetheless we travelled to Milan due to the fact that Poppi’s old friend is currently living and studying there. Poppi decided to visit us in Germany last December and we wanted to do a bit of travelling together – and why not to the world of Prada? Milan is currently the financial central of Italy and therefore doesn’t attract nearly as many tourists compared to Rome or Tuscany. However our taxi driver did mention that he has noticed a drastic increase in Milan tourism the past 3 years. He also suggested that we try the cotoletta, Milanese veal cutlet. A wise man he is.
In the two days spent in Milan, we travelled ceaselessly by foot to see some major attractions, but in truth we travelled just to reach the next food destination. Regardless of the type of food – street food, high end or local comfort – everything was cooked to perfection. It is unbelievable how spaghetti bolognese or a ball of mozzarella can leave such a lasting impression.
Our friend ironically was in Brunei during the time we were there. Nonetheless we must thank him graciously, for we would have not visited this well-heeled city without him.
