The Duomo in Milan
The next morning we checked out of our hotel and walked to the train station to get tickets for that night. Then we took a train to the Duomo where some guys tried to scam us by putting corn in our hands and getting the pigeons to come out of our hands, then asking for euros. I realized they spoke Arabic, and began talking to them. They suddenly became very friendly.

We went inside the Duomo, which is a massive cathedral in which we took some interesting pictures. Afterwards we got some food at a McDonald's and some pretty good coffee. It was interesting to see men in business suits eating McDonald's for lunch.

We went to a nearby tourist information office and found out that you cannot see Da Vincis Last Supper without a reservation, so we walked to a castle downtown.

Inside was two museums, both of which were free of charge. The first included all kinds of old sculptures, carvings, statues, etc. A large part of the museum included renessaince-era weapons such as guns, cannons, swords, and armor. This is also where Michaelangelo's Pieta is located. For the tickets being free, this museum had a lot of fascinating things to see, and most items were not behind glass so you could touch them. Since photography was allowed, we were also able to take some goofy photos.

The other museum included strange-looking modernist furniture, religious and scenic paintings (some very creepy), and religious - related sculptures. There we met a girl named Lindsey who was traveling with her father.

We walked back to the metro station and took the train to our hotel and got our luggage. We found our way to a market and bought some food and drinks. Then we took a 3 hour train ride to Venice.
