The Columns of San Lorenzo

Here are some Ancient Roman ruins built before the second century AD.

and the lady that did not speak English gave me a cappucino to take back to my room

Here at the Hotel Spidari in central Milan, there is a tiny Italian woman downstairs that asks no questions and makes cappucinos all day. I’ve been eating breakfasts down there while reading my book… every time I look up, she is standing there like a ghostly madonna, holding a new cappucino with a bowl of unpronouncable sweetener products. Yesterday morning, after the game, I did not know what to say to her, so I said, “Viva Forza Italia,” to which she returned a grim expression and presented a fresh cappucino.

My sister also says I should post more pictures of myself… so here ya go! :)

Navigli Canals

On Saturday night I headed over to the Navigli canals area, which is a nicer area of Milan with all sorts of restaurants and litle artsy shops that stay open late. This is also the same canal they built specifically to barge in stone and other materials to build the Duomo. This canal had everything you would expect in a quaint European area: picturesque restaurants, unique cultural shops, and dozens of angry-looking Nigerians selling trinkets of the Eiffel Tower.

More Fireworks

Can I post more of these shots? Yes, of course… they are so cool!

Along the Garden Path

This was a cool little path I found in DC with some nice azaleas blooming along the side.

Jetski Jump

Here is an image from Lake Travis I grabbed a few weeks ago.

Chaos in Italy!

I picked a heck of time to come to Italy! There is absolute chaos all over the streets here after the win. My hotel is right by the Duomo were everyone was watching on the big screen. The last time I saw this many drunk Italians is when I went the wrong way to the bathroom at Olive Garden and ended up in the kitchen; and they were not Italians. I think they were Mexicans.

Italia!

Italy Wins!

And here is one I got right before the game started:

The Duomo

I visited the roof of the Duomo today, which I highly recommend for any visitors. Most people don’t know you can actually get up on the roof. This building is so vast that it can hold 40,000 people inside.

The Duomo, the Heaven Side

Basilica of San Lorenzo

I visited the Basilica of San Lorenzo, which was built in the 4th and 5th centuries from material from the leftover Roman amphitheater.
