Piedmont, Italy September 29 & 30, 2012
An overnight flight from Los Angeles to Frankfurt with a short hop to Milan put us in position to start our adventure. On a rainy Saturday, we stopped for lunch at Peck—something akin to Harrod's Food Hall in London—and to gawk at all the amazing foods. (center) Tomatoes interspersed with zucchini slices.

We saw Leonardo's Last Supper painting, not many people allowed in the room at the same time and on 15 minute intervals. Milan's Duomo (above right) is always impressive as is its interior. We managed to be inside at just the right time to catch colored light from stained glass windows painting the tall columns (below middle)

After the rain on Saturday, the sun returned on Sunday so we could walk in the park and listen (briefly) to a drum concert in the park (below right)
