Milan’s Spectacular Duomo Cathedral

Saturday, despite being very close to the tail end of November, was a fabulously sunny day here in Milan, Italy. I was out and about, exited the Duomo metro stop and was confronted by the Duomo, Milan’s incredibly ornate cathedral, which, owing to its location, is the city’s centerpiece and what a centerpiece it is!

The afternoon light was lovely and so I whipped out my trusty Blackberry and took a photograph. Here it is. Quite a few people on Twitter liked this photograph too, so I thought I’d add it to Italy Chronicles.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

Spectacular, isn’t it? I hope you like the photograph.

I’ll never forget the day I first saw Milan’s Duomo – catching sight of it for the first time literally took my breath away. I’d go so far as to say that it’s one of those sights that at least once in your life you must see. Actually, Italy has quite a number of ‘must see’ sights with Milan’s Duomo being merely one of many.

Oh, as you can see, and contrary to what Milan residents may grumpily claim, Milan is not always overcast during the autumn and winter months.

Not Nice

Yesterday I was out with our dog when I noticed another dog on the other side of the road. It was off its leash and appeared to have wandered into the road. The owners were a Chinese family, mother, father, and child in stroller. Unusual, I mused, you don’t see that many people of Chinese extraction with dogs.

Take a Leek and add some Pecorino

Those who hail from my homeland may think that the humble leek belongs in that small corner of the UK dominated by sheep and male voice choirs, namely Wales.
