Before going, people told me Milan was the ugly city of Italy, the industrial and gray one. I am happy I went. I completely fell for this city. A perfect mix of culture, industrialism, art and vitality. It is heartbreaking to see what this city and Italy as a whole is going through right now. But just like it has in the past, I know it will make it through this crisis as well.
Much love from Madrid and Honduras.
