More of Sunday in Milan
Next door to the cathedral in Milan is the Galleria, the most famous shopping center in the city. We were hungry, having worked up an appetite for lunch walking around on the roof, so we headed over that way.
The entrance was completely jammed with people! Everybody was pushing their way in. Above the noise of the crowd you could hear a marching band. We merged and swam with the crowd, then bailed out at the first restaurant we saw.
Whew! The crowd didn’t bother me nearly so much when I wasn’t in it. And the food was good too.
The band marched and played for a few minutes longer, and came by our restaurant on the way out.
After a rest break back at the hotel, most of us went out to the World’s Fair (Expo) for the evening to see if we could have an interesting dinner and see the sights. Unfortunately, the World’s Fair was our first real disappointment of the trip. Our dinner was poor, and most of the sights were not really worth seeing. I’ve posted a few photos here but really it was more exhausting than anything else.
