週末ミラネーゼ。Weekend in Milan.

Metro station in Milano.
MUJI in Milano. 無印良品、ミラノ・ブエノスアイレス通りPICT0108
We went back to Milan Friday evening and stayed until Sunday evening. We usually take trains to go back to Italy from Switzerland. It takes 3-4 hours, it depends on which train you take. Normally, train tickets are expensive in Switzerland as well as Japan. But if you live in Switzerland and have Demi-Tarif, the trip to Italy is a very good deal. Make a resevation min. 3days before the weekend, stay in Italy at least one night over weekend, then show your Demi-tarif at the travel office in the gare. It costs us 57CHF, plus 10-15CHF for handling fees.
On Saturday, we headed to police office to see if Bambina's residency permission was ready or not. We saw a long line in front of the entrance and we saw a sign which said " ready for the permission people who applied before 15th Novemver 2004". She applied the end Dec, so it will probably take 2more months for her to get it... How come the Italian Public services are so behind? They are so slow but they behave like they are the KINGs. Well, we really hate taking about it.
After the legal issue, we headed to MUJI shop. MUJI MILANO : CORSO BUENOS AIRES 36
We bought Wok set; Wok with wooden utensiles and bamboo chopsticks -15 Euros.
Then visited an artist in Sesto San Giovanni. The artist is a friend of our family and he made our wedding rings. This time, we recieved the beautiful wedding rings and also ordered another ring for Bambina.
Weather was not good over the weekend, so we just went home eventually and invited friends for dinner. Next time to go back to Milan will be the end of May.
