"Milan Italy" Milan by Kodi01

<font size=3><font color=blue>This was the first stop in Italy. I got to see very little of Milan, mostly the train station. This is one of the fashion capitols of the world.

Along with the Mona Lisa at the Paris Louvre, The Last Supper is Leonardo's most famous work. It is one of the paintings most often taken as a symbol of Western Art. It depicts the instant in which Jesus announces to the apostles that he knows one of them will betray him. Thanks to the sense of perspective the painting conveyed, the monks eating in the refectory almost had the impression they were part of the scene.

    I don't see why smaller cars are a problem. They are more fuel efficient and kinder to the environment. Typical American comment.

    We both need to return to this fashionable city! I didn't get to see the "Last Supper" this last trip but I did take photos of some "artwork.": They were all about 6'2-6'4....various shades of eyes and hair. Yep, well-built works of art if you ask me!
