We are on our second day in Milan and it has been fabulous! I just woke up from a short nap...we are pretty much over the jetlag, but walking around all day will make you pretty tired!

We started our journey on Tuesday morning with a flight from IAH to Newark. After a 3 hour layover we left NJ around 6:30 pm for the overnight to Milan. We tried to sleep as much as we could on the plane ride but it was spotty at best!

After we landed, we took the 45 minute train into the city and 5 minute cab ride to Joey's awesome apartment. He is located right next to the large park and walking distance to pretty much everything. Milan is a fairly small city and easy to get around. Linh arrived about 2 hours after us so after some freshening up we went for some lunch (pizza, of course) and dessert (gelato, of course). We walked around the park before heading back for a quick nap.

Joey worked yesterday so after waking up Joe went for a quick run and I took more photos at the park. After Joey came home, he took us out for drinks, dinner and dessert. We went to this local resturant for fish and steak and another yummy gelato place.

Today we did the touristy things: toured the Duomo and piazza, saw Da Vinci's The Last Supper, which was totally amazing and kudos for Joey for making us a reservation and window shopped at the Galleria (unfortunately stuff here is more $$ than in the States so no purchases have been made...yet!).

Milan is a very cool, chic city. People here seem to have more style - it's very inspiring! Tomorrow we will be headed out to Lake Como - can't wait!
