Milan = Yuckier

I would like to preface this by saying I thoroughly enjoyed everything about Italy.  Except Pisa.  And also except Milan.  The Duomo in Milan is spectacular, both inside...

And out.

The gypsies, however, think it's cute to attract thousands of pooping birds to the square.

Feed the birds, tuppence a bag...
 This park is also awesome. 

It’s called Parco Sempione.  I especially liked it because of the giant hydrangeas.

I had hydrangeas at my wedding because they were
cheaper than gardenias
 I also enjoyed re-creating the scene from Borat when he’s sitting in a chair upon first arriving to America.

King of the castle, I have a chair, go do this, go do that
Inside the park, we went to a little cafe where I had a tasty salad of lettuce, tomatoes, pineapple, and baby shrimp with oil and balsamic vinegar.  I will try and re-create this salad soon.

But here is where Milan crossed the line... when the bars closed.  At 9pm.  On a Saturday.  During the Euro Cup.  Milan, we will NEVER be friends after you acted like this.

Adding salt to the wound, here is a picture from the next day, at about 1pm.
Why is everything shuttered up?  The workers can't be sleeping
off their hangovers since everything CLOSED THE NIGHT
When we inquired to our hotel receptionist, he was like “Oh yeah, everything closes really early here except if you’re by the Duomo.”  Would have been good to know earlier.

Cost: Free, since not a damn bar was open. Duomo is also free, as is Parco Sempione.

Best deal: Leaving
