Il mio returno a Milano

As I am sure all of you have heard by now, I am back in Milan for yet another year!  I enjoyed my experience here so much that I was not ready to say Arrivederci.  Sydney, Kourtney, and I (the three  returning knitwear students) along with the help of Lisa our program director were able to get the 4th year knitwear program up and running for the first time ever in Milan.  I am so happy to be back and cannot wait to see what the year has in store:)

Opening the door to my new apartment located on Ripa di Porta Ticinese (aka the canal).  This year I moved a whole two buildings over from my apartment last year.  I am living in an adorable apartment with two Italian girls (Margharita e Chiara).  They are both studying at Universita Cattolica in Milano. 

The walk from the train station at Porta Genova to my apartment. 

This is the breathtaking view from my new apartment.  I am lucky enough to have a window overlooking the bellisima canal!

The view when you step out from my front door.  Che bella!

Margharita and I all dressed up for a nice Japanese dinner at the restaurant where she works.

The amazing sushi dinner we had at Margharita's restaurant Kiyo. Amazing food! I am taking everyone and anyone that comes to visit me this year:)

My other roommate Chiara and our friend helping me attempt to build a desk from IKEA!  This was a first and hopefully a last.

The finished project:) I am quite proud of us.  It turned out great!

The beautiful campus of Universita Cattolica.

Sydeny and I took a day trip last Saturday to the beautiful town of Sirmione (about an hour and a half outside of Milano) where we spent the day walking around the ancient castle and lounging on a dock at Lago di Garda.  The following pictures are from that day... I will let them speak for themselves:)
