Monthly Archives: June 2011

Every last Sunday of the moth, there is an open market along Navigli canal in Milan, Italy. It was really warm day (30c). I couldn’t believe how warm it was. Still people were not afraid to get burned under the sun. I saw hundreds and hundreds of visitors walking along Navigli, browsing items and enjoying gelato! It was called “Antique Market” because most of vendors were selling vintage and antique stuff. They were interesting, some were collectible.

Loving a wonderful weekend!

There were some items… looked like calculators, cash registers, type writers, etc. Some were really back in the old days… wow!


 
 
 
Freezers… coolers… vintage coca cola style…


 
 
 
During these times… nothing is better than fresh gelato… loving Gelateria Marghera (Via Marghera 33, Milano)


 
 
 
Summer is already here… I will probably be away from time to time… taking a nice and long vacation… hope you all have great summer holidays!

The weather is so nice in Milan, Italy. Well, it could rain a lot sometimes but still it is nice and shine. I had a little time in the afternoon, checked out stores and shops around Piazza del Duomo. The tourists were packed as usual. Love a nice and easy day…

Zucca is a coffee shop inGalleria Vittorio Emanuele II. The unique thing about this place is they have an old fashion mosaic wall… love how it looks. I read a tourist guide about Zucca, it was famous for opera writers and performers to come have a cup of coffee in the past… well, it is just a walking distance to “La Scala”… no wonder… still it is famous for Milanese to come until these days.

Have a nice day, everyone!!!

There is a nice little park in the city area of Milano, Giardino della Guastalla. It is located right near State University of Milan (Università Statale di Milano). During the day, you may see many college students there… sitting in the sun, having lunch, or just resting. Not only students, working people like to go there during their lunch break also. I found it was like a little haven in the busy area of the city, love it!
