The Last Supper…

Tomorrow Stefano and I are going to Milan mainly to see Leonardo Da Vinci’s “Last Supper” (L’Ultima Cena). Stefano made reservations months ago…I mean, you can’t simply show up at the convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan and buy a ticket. You won’t get in. You have to go online (or call), see which dates are available and book. We booked in June. 

Stefano has never been to Milan, and I’ve been there only a couple of times…All I remember about the city is that the Duomo (i.e. the cathedral) is quite spectacular…and the Navigli area is interesting…oh, and the Castello Sforzesco is nice. That’s about it. I mean, even the biggest Milan fanatic in the world wouldn’t be able to declare that Milan is more beautiful or interesting than, say, Florence (that was totally a random pick, eh! 😉 )…But it should be fun. 

Stefano and I are going to stay overnight in a FOUR-star hotel (!). No kidding. Four stars. You see, I found a great rate (online), and then, just to make sure everything was okay, I called the hotel and chatted with the manager. Within minutes, he had upgraded our room to a superior one for the same price. 🙂 That happens to me quite frequently. I guess I have the magic touch (or some such thing)….whatever. 

In case you’re worried about the cats: we’re leaving them in very good hands. Their favorite person in the world (besides me, Stefano and my parents) is moving in with them for two days. They’ll be thrilled!

That’s about it. Oh, except it’s cool in Florence. Yes, COOL. Bliss! This morning we had a terrific thunderstorm that sent the kitties scampering for cover, as flat as pancakes. But I must say, it’s great to hear the sound of raindrops again. We really need the rain…Of course, this weekend in Milan is supposed to be a very wet one. Stefano and I don’t care…We have our Skomer Island gear. Sooooo, let it rain! 🙂
