Milan

Seems like a very liveable city.  Not as much of a hussle as Rome but has some very interesting architecture.  Think quite a bit was flattened in WW2 including La Scala.

Have my very expnsive ticket in hand for tonight’s performance, and have had octopus for lunch so what else could an old gal want…

Trip over left me feeling OK, ate very little and drank very little of the very expensive food and wine, hurt to turn down Moet, then Veuve Cliqiot followed by an offering of Pol Roger…..sigh had very little but the innards were appropriately grateful.

Hotel in Milan is OK in a tired sort of way. Had to get a bit shirty in the bar last night, asked for a dry white offered guerverzt ramine, no,  offered a nasty white,two sips, no….finally a mediocre white!!! 7 euro a glass!!! After all that yummy stuff I did not drink…

Bit of a hassle re the Opera ticket, only arrived an hour ago and performance is tonight.. The Girl from the West,score by Puccini…
Managed to find the station and get my tickets for tomorrow to Pont St Martin.

Must work out which side of the pavement I am meant to be on, in our country we instinctively seem to know,I keep banging into people but only had one snarl…

Be glad to be out of a big town…. Weather is pleasant but has been bad with a fresh dumping of snow on the Alps I start from plus on the lower lit above Pisa I have to crawl over…

    Will be interested in the opera, not one I have heard of, not that I’m usually a big fan, but the venue is a big plus. Hope you have enough warm stuff with you to cope with snow- supposed to be spring for goodness sake. Depends how high up you have to go I guess. Still warmish here, actually a more comfortable season with coolish nights and pleasant sunny days. Don’t suppose it will last much longer. XX S
