Hello, dear actifitters and friends!

I returned to Milan (my hometown) after so many years...

I have a love / hate relationship with this city.

I have lived there for over thirty years and over time I have accumulated several layers of negativity towards it.

In particular, I could hardly stand the frenzy of its inhabitants, particularly busy doing everything in a hurry and dedicating their lives to laurà! (working). Furthermore, the climatic conditions, for most of the year, are rather unfavorable, with great heat in summer and a damp (and foggy) cold in winter... not to mention the rate of acoustic and atmospheric pollution and the gray sky that characterizes most of the winter period.

Well, today I went back by train, with a very effective (and punctual) FrecciaRossa by Trenitalia from Venice.
Arriving at the central station, I activated Google Maps to calculate the route with public transport, given that the area in which I had to go was completely unknown to me, together with the fact that the lines of the Municipal Transport Company (ATM), in all these my years of absence have certainly changed.

I climbed an old tram number 5, one of those with the plates held together with rivet nails, wooden doors and wooden benches, and immediately the memories of a little boy re-surfaced in my mind, when occasionally "I clung to the tram" (well, I just climbed it, maybe running up to it so as not to lose it) to shorten my journey home / school / home, which I normally did while walking. (Now do you understand why @amico is so led to walk tens of thousands of steps a day?)IMG_20190830_221232.jpg

Take a Tram in Milan, a "high-speed city", it's quite contrasting... because it is the slowest public transport ever!
Well, during the trip I enjoyed watching other travelers, mostly curved to look at their cell phones.
Then I looked around, recognizing along the path some areas of Milan I visited with friends, classmates or colleagues.

In the end, the Ortica area, where I thought the tram was the end of the line where usually the tram stops a few minutes, instead it left to go back to where I started. So I got off at the next stop and my walk to reach Lambrate has stretched... all for the benefit of my physical and "tourist" activity.

On my way, I came across some murals and an ancient church...

... do you like the antique / modern contrast?

I generally don't like it very much but here, being a mural art, I pretty like it!

That's all for today ...


I wish you a happy night/morning/afternoon/evening! 😜

A huge hug! 🤗
See you tomorrow!


Everything is okay! 👌






ITA 🇮🇹

Oggi sono tornato a Milano, mia città natale...

Ho un rapporto di odio/amore, con questa città.

Ci ho vissuto per più di trent'anni e col tempo ho accumulato diversi strati di negatività nei suoi confronti.
In particolare, mal sopportavo la frenesia dei suoi abitanti, particolarmente impegnati a fare tutto di fretta e a dedicare la propria vita a laurà! (lavorare). Inolre le condizioni climatiche, per la maggior parte dell'anno, sono piuttosto sfavorevoli, con un gran caldo d'estate e un freddo umido (e nebbioso) d'inverno... per non parlare del tasso d'inquinamento acustico, atmosferico e del cielo grigio che caratterizza gran parte del periodo invernale.

Beh, oggi ci sono tornato in treno, con un efficacissimo (e puntuale) FrecciaRossa di Trenitalia da Venezia.
Arrivato in stazione centrale, ho attivato Google Maps per farmi calcolare il percorso con i mezzi pubblici, visto che la zona in cui dovevo recarmi era a me completamente sconosciuta, unita al fatto che le linee della Azienda Trasporti Municipali (ATM), in tutti questi miei anni di assenza, sicuramente sono cambiate.

Sono salito su un vecchio tram numero 5, di quelli con le lamiere tenute assieme con i chiodi a ribattino, le porte e le panchine di legno, e subito nella mia mente sono riaffiorati i ricordi di un ragazzino, quando saltuariamente "mi attaccavo al tram" (beh, semplicemente ci salivo, magari raggiungendolo di corsa per non perderlo) per accorciare il mio percorso casa / scuola / casa, che normalmente svolgevo camminando. (Ora capisci perchè @amico è così portato a camminare per decine di migliaia di passi al giorno?)IMG_20190830_221232.jpg

Prendere un Tram a Milano, una città 2ad alta velocità", è piuttosto contrastante... perchè è il mezzo di trasporto pubblico più lento in assoluto!
Beh, durante il viaggio mi sono divertito a guardare gli altri viaggiatori, perlopiù ricurvi a osservare i propri cellulari.
Poi mi sono guardato in giro, riconoscendo sul percorso zone di Milano da me frequentate con amici, compagni di scuola o di lavoro.

Alla fine la zona Ortica, dove pensavo che il tram facesse capolinea fermandosi qualche minuto e invece è ripartito per tornare da dove ero partito. Quindi sono sceso alla fermata successiva e la mia camminata per raggiungere Lambrate si è allungata... tutta a beneficio della mia attività fisica e turistica.

Sul mio percorso, ho incrociato alcuni murales e una chiesetta antica...

... ti piace il contrasto antico / moderno?

A me generalmente non piace molto ma qui, trattandosi di arte murales, non mi dispiace affatto!

Per oggi è tutto...



Ti auguro una felice notte/mattina/pomeriggio/sera!

Un caro abbraccio! 🤗
A domani!


Va tutto bene! 👌
