Now for some Milan photos ... just the beginning :)
The thing that struck me most straight out of the box is how much graffiti there is EVERYWHERE. I've never seen anything like it and i live in downtown Atlanta! Alot of the graffitti are just "tags" - not really arty, just names and labels. Anyways, here are some shots from all over the city:
This is by the canals. I am soooooooooo inspired by graffiti like this!!!!!
Just a street corner.
Another street corner. Love the juxtaposition of the tenet making their balcony all pretty and naturesque with the gritty city graffiti!
Now, onto a little bit of architecture. Being from a country that wasnt built but within the last three centuries, it's crazy to think I was walking by and under structures built 8+ centuries (if not more) ago!
Finally, like any good tourist, we visited the Duomo in Milan - the fourth oldest Catholic Church in the world. Legend has it, it took 500 years to be built, was completed in the 17th century. Everywhere you look there is a scultpure or stainglass that all pertain to bible stories. However, since i've never cracked open a bible I couldnt tell you what anything is - and i hope none of the photos i took offends anyone in a religious way! I just thought they were pretty and fascinating to look at!
Just a couple of miscellaneous things:
