Travel Photo Series - MILAN, ITALY
My first and only visit to Italy so far, was to visit my friend Michaela ("Miky") from Milan. We met when we were both studying abroad in the business school at Sungkyunkwan University in Seoul. I think we synced so well on a cultural level since I am a quarter Italian myself, and grew up with a lot of the same customs thanks to my grandfather's side of the family. It really was an adventure getting to Italy in the first place, but once I arrived in Milan I understood exactly what "crazy" looks like. They drive little cars extremely fast, treat soccer like it's a holy ritual, and eat so much pizza and ice cream yet they're all skinny and beautiful - crazy, right? Nevertheless, I spent an amazing 3 days exploring the city and especially loved the Domo - the 3rd largest cathedral in the world. Below are a few random shots from that trip in May 2008 - enjoy!
