hey MItalia, Nice pics dude.

Looking at the pics, we didnt feel that you went on a business trip. It looked more like a leisure.

nice pics dude. i hope i will get to travel to Italy for one of the projects for which we are trying!

I read somewhere that driving in Italy is not like other European countries. more like India, not much of driving sense I heard. is it true?

Good luck.

Thats mostly in south of Italy. North of Italy is much better. And the traffic offense is serious. They have a point system, where your license card is given a point of 20. If you over speed beyond (i think 20%) you get 2 points deducted, etc etc. And drunk and drive is 10 point gone.

So, its not always true that Italy is much like driving in India.

On +ve note

You have more freedom in India. Stop where you like, take U-turn where you like, speed where you like etc etc... Hehehe

Default And now comes the next episode in Milano, Italy.

This time I reached Italy in a much better shape.

Yesterday managed to get to Milan. The Museum of Science and technology in Milan was always in my top of list of attractions. The main reason being, this is one of the fewest of the Museum where you have the works of Leonardo Vince's.

Ok, while the details are getting ready, here is the trailor/teaser as usual!
