Teatro Alla Scala

the Teatro alla Scala was one of our first stops when we arrived in Milan. It is a famous theater where they create all of their own set designs and costumes from scratch. What was most amazing to me was being able to see the painters working. It was truly an inspiring and eye opening trip.

our Milan trip was amazing! It is so different from Florence, and still totally not what I had pictured it to be. Above are pictures from our hotel, Hotel Serena. We were of course given the traditional "Italian" breakfast every morning consisting of cappuccino's and croissants. I have a feeling I am goign to have alot of cavities when I get home!

the Polimoda library has the best collection of magazines and books that I could get lost in for hours 

view from our school, which is ontop of a hill

the hill that we climb every morning (it looks alot nicer in the picture, but trust me it's not)

I've been meaning to take a picture of this beauty but I never got around to it until today!
