Rather than try to post the hundreds of pictures from our jaunt in Europe, I decided to consolidate some of the best ones into collages. Here's the first, in order of our trip.
I'll establish a labeling system along the Column/Row lines -- so the columns are 1, 2, 3, and 4, and the rows are A, B, etc.
A1 & A2: Our hostel bedroom balcony and view.
A3: In front of La Scala!
A4: The famous Galleria which runs between La Scala and the Duomo
B1: Some of the dazzling windows at the rear of the Duomo
B2: The University (of Milan?)
B3: The first gelato of the trip
B4: A beautiful painting I cannot identify... sorry
C1: Inside the Duomo -- the amazing parquet floor! That church was one of my favorites of the whole trip
C2: Typical Milanese architecture
C3: On the grand canal in Milan; a big nightlife strip (not that you can tell from the photo)
