Stranger in Milan

I’m having a battle with my computer, so allow me to pre-apologize for the errors which are bound to happen.

Once again, my graduate program has provided me the opportunity for a fantastic study abroad program (not study a broad – I checked); this time, in Florence and Cagli, Italy. I flew into Milan late last night and spent much of today walking around, exploring, and crashing a wedding.

Some of my favorite images are here:

OK, you got me. This was not Milan. It was the Boston-to-Istanbul leg of the journey, and this little one was enthralled by Turkish Air’s flight safety video.

Flower girls. I did mention I crashed a wedding, right?

No idea what this little one’s role was. She walked down the aisle just before the bride’s parents, and stole the show.

The bride, in all her glory. That veil kept going, and going, and going …

If someone can explain to me why Baby Jesus lives inside Saturn, I’m listening.

Looking down a side street at men selling knock-off purses.

That’s it for today. Tomorrow involves a train trip to Florence, and the possibility of photos along the way.

    • A very tiny girl in a very big gown. Everything about this wedding screamed, “my dad spent a hundred thousand Euros to make me happy.” I should have stuck around for the feast!
