We woke up early just to get it all together and have time for a final walk about.

We just had to get over to Dolce Locanda for coffee and a sweet goodbye to the ladies there. Interesting because the big chef had stopped by and he was talking to the bakers, in the kitchen.  they had made some kind of cones out of croissant dough and were filling them with custard.  He and his wife were eating the with lots of scrutiny and smiles.   I took a couple of more shots of their cake case:

Licia came to check us out.  She couldn’t be nicer and said next time she will tell me more things to do like an olive oil tour and a special restaurant out of town.

Took some parting shots of Palazzo Emilie, our temporary home.IMG_2125pe

We got a taxi which arrived sooner than we could get downstairs, to the train station and we were off to Milan.  The train was very crowded and we got on the wrong car; had to roll our luggage through the cars to find our seats.  Rookie mistake.

At Milano Centrale we left our luggage and took the Metro to the Duomo.  There was a long line to go in.  We went over to the Rinascente department store and ate at the Obica (Interesting they have changed their name from ObiKa to Obica) bar.  Had a nice salad and a board of meats and cheeses.  Ken was not happy with the horrible, loud music and the staff there was a bit unfriendly.  On the way down I did some shopping but bought nothing. We did walk over to Peck for a quick walk through.  It looks a little tired but at least the window is still brilliant:

We sat in the shady side street and gazed at the duomo and the amazing architecture all around. It was really hot but there was a breeze.IMG_2114D We took the Metro back to Milano Centrale and got on the bus to Malpensa.  We are staying at the, no frills,  Marriott affiliated, Moxy hotel right at Terminal 2.   This place is strange.  All very new but aimed at younger, maybe business travelers.  This is the wall in our small room:IMG_2127mura

Anyway (allora)…  We had a drink at the bar here and a pre boxed sandwich.  Came up stairs and ate some cookies Luisa had given us and watched the last Grace and Frankie.
