The cab ride from the train station to our hotel was most interesting - our driver had a wooden shelf built next to his steering wheel where his laptop sat. Every time he slowed down he either shuffled his iTunes playlist or checked Facebook. And some people think I am addicted to technology!
We took the subway to the center of town to see the cathedral. It is a most striking view when you emerge from below into the square where the cathedral looms in front of you. Unfortunately, the moment was spoiled by all the men who are trying to give you a "gift" of a friendship bracelet.
I'm really glad we were somewhat forced to overnight in Milan and grateful I could see this amazing structure!
