First of all, let’s start with an Italian word, “Canale” (kah- NAH-leh). It means “Canal”. In Milan, a famous canal among the locals is “Navigli”. This area is full of art galleries, antique shops, coffee shops and restaurant. I had a chance to stop by… just to see some paintings and had afternoon coffee with friends. The scenery is quite amazing… couldn’t help taking some pictures. Every last Sunday of the month, there will be an open market along the canal… looking forward to be there. Hope the weather would give us some mercy… no rain, please!
