This is in Piazza del Duomo. One of the biggest Christmas trees in the world. It's usually taller and thinner. WITH WHITE LIGHTS. But it's still beautiful. And I love those red ribbons!
While yesterday I was in Rho, Milan for "la fiera dell'artigianato" (or l'artigiano in fiera), an International crafts selling exhibition. They do it every year in the first week of December!
It's divided in three main sections: Italy, Europe & Countries of the world. And each one of them is divided in many other countries. In the case of Italy, in other regions. Each country/region has different stands, and restaurants & bars with their specialties. They had paella in Spain, Chinese food in China (uhmm, duh! ahah), beer in Germany, pubs in Ireland.. It's very interesting and really worth your time.
Two problems though:
- IT'S SUPERCROWDED. Like loaded, FULL, absolutely PACKED OF PEOPLE. It's really hard to walk straight without bumping into somebody.
- EVERYTHING COSTS LIKE A FREAKING FORTUNE. A bottle of water in "Germany" was 2 euros. A slice of pizza in "Sicily" was 3 euros.
(It snowed yesterday in Milan, so today I'm definitely going out and taking pictures with my outfit that I'll probably post tomorrow!)
