On Monday the 13th I touched down in Milano. I had a red eye flight from Newark and a short stopover in Portugal before landing here. The weather was sunny and mid 60s, a perfect first afternoon. I had not slept much on my flight over and ended up sleeping for almost eleven hours that first night. The rest of the week was filled with time spent with my Italian family, catching up with friends, drinking coffee and eating all the food. For the weekend, we escaped to the seaside. All in all it was a lovely first week back. It feels as though nothing as changed. It’s good to be back in the city.
