Milan

Ivan, Jennifer and I got a train to Milan on October 14, 2009. We walked around to find lunch.  We each had a pizza.  I got one with banana slices.  Ivan had a tuna and onion while Jennifer got margarita.  It tasted alright. We went inside the Duomo di Milano which is the largest gothic cathedral in the world. The cathedral is known for it’s beautiful stained glass windows.  It’s really pretty inside.

Ivan, Jennifer and I woke up early on October 13, 2009.  We walked to the train station to meet a bus.  Today, we were going on a Tuscan Tour. The bus was packed.  The views were amazing on our way to Siena.  It was a great day out! We arrived in Siena.  Our tour guide walked us to meet our Siena guide.  It was a local woman.  She took us to the oldest bank in the world. We saw a really big square.  Next, we visited a cathedral. There was lots of great artwork with vivid colors inside.  It also…

Colosseum

Ivan, Jennifer and I ate some tasty sandwiches from a local cafe on October 10, 2009. We went to the Colosseum.  We bought tickets for the guided tour.  It’s a much shorter line and only costs a few Euros extra. We met up with the group and our guide.  The guide was Italian.  She told us about the Colosseum. The Colosseum is nice, but it’s mostly in ruins.  It is amazing to imagine how big and beautiful it once was. Plus, it would have been cool to see the grand events that were held in the Colosseum. We walked around…

Ivan, Jennifer and I checked out of the Best Western Arosa on October 8, 2009.  We went to Metro station.  We took a train to the train station.  Then, we got a bus to the airport. We boarded a plane headed towards Rome, Italy.  It was a two hour flight. Ivan was trying to find a taxi to the apartments we were staying at.  One guy said 50 Euros.  He said no to him.  Then, another guy said it would probably be 35-40 Euros.  We hopped inside his taxi. The guy drove really fast.  He wasn’t sure where it was…
