Had two meetings to do in Milan before going home, so once I had completed them I wandered around the center for a while, where snow was still on the ground in some places.
Milan is as it always is, a mess of traffic and people, nearly all of whom are rigorously dressed in black. Man, did Dolce and Gabbana have an impact on this city - for years now the Milanese are in synchronicity with their grey city.
The Duomo has been cleaned up again; its façade a light tawny gold as the sun edged its way through the arctic blue sky. Milan's one saving grace this - and this building is one of the most graceful there are.
