From Rome, I took a train to Milan. My plan was to get to Milan late morning, hang out for the day, then catch a night train to Barcelona. I met up with my buddy Nick who is studying in Milan at Bocconi University. Nick and I met when we were taking classes as part of his study abroad program at my university a couple summers ago. We only met up for lunch because he had a few finals to study for that day.
After lunch, I wandered around the city for the rest of the afternoon before I had to be back at the train station that evening.
This is the giant Duomo, or cathedral, in the center of the city.
Across the street from the Duomo is the Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, which is a large, glass-topped shopping mall. After all, Milan is known for some of the world’s best shopping, so I thought I should check it out.
Now, FINALLY…Back to Barcelona!!!
