A Day in Milan, part IV: first and last moments
First and last moments of this trip to Milan.
Photos 1-3: The Dome by sunlight in the morning and in the afternoon, the Vittorio Emanuele II Gallery and the Aperol terrace right on piazza Duomo: it's Milan's true core, full of tourists and any kind of people and (not cheap) shops.
Photo 4: a random orchid in a flower shop window near via monte Napoleone (yes, the one in the reflex window are my feet... Just in case someone has this kind of fetish 😝). Photo 5: "fresh" burgers at Five Guys, a new burger shop that inaugurated recently in Milan. They make burgers only with fresh ingredients. There can be a queue of 15 minutes and look even cool outside but may I give you a suggestion? DON'T EAT THERE:
a) High prices: they make you pay for the fact that the food is fresh but you can eat more than the double in any other fast food for that price.
b) the fact that the food is fresh is unnoticeable in the end, eliminating the only distinguishing feature of this fast food (see point a).
c) the tables are dirty: nobody went to clean them I had to clean it by myself (and it is quite a relevant factor if you consider that they don't have trays: you must eat on the burger paper directly over a non-sinitized surface). Ok they were full, but at least 15 people in the kitchen (2-3 people preparing the same burger at the same time!) 3 people to show you how the mashines for drinks work, 1 security at the entrance and... Nobody can take 5 minutes now and then to go and clean the tables?
It made me miss McDonald's badly (and I'm not a fast food lover).
Photo 6: Sky buildings from the Rogoredo train stations on my way back home. Nothing special, just to document my journey back. I was quite worn out after hours walking around. But I like sky TV programs so I took that picture.
