ahh milano

I’m in Milan this week doing some research and things. this time i’m in the starhotel splendido. it has been raining all day, so even though i arrived in town around 10am, i only took a short walk, and got some lunch. Tomorrow, if it isn’t raining, i’m going to walk corso buenos aires if it isn’t raining and then do the golden quadrangle. I don’t know how long that will take, but we’ll see. If it raining I’m going to figure out the metro and go to some museums or churches or whatever is open.

Malpensa Airport was pretty bad this time. There were huge lines in the international terminal for both transfers, and I mean it looked like several hundred, perhaps as many as a thousand people waiting in two huge groups. Luckily I figured out that i was in those groups and went to passport control, which had 7 lines and took about 45 minutes to get through.

after that it was the malpensa shuttle to central station. it is quick and fast. i mobblogged some of it.
