Milan, in Summer

I had never expected the change of season can have such a big impact on my impression of Milan. Milan was just a dull, liveless industry hub of Italy when I first came to know this centuries-old city. With the arrival of summer, everything has changed. The city has transformed itself into a lively and beautiful European city of great history.

This transformation is most obvious at Sempione. There was nobody there, everything was just simply gloomy. Now that Summer has come, you see people having pinics with friends and family, sun-bathing/tanning under the lazy afternoon sun, children running around. What a typical lively summer afternoon!

And can you believe that I am writing this blog entry at 9pm local time, and the sun still has not fully set yet!
