Less than 24-hours, and it was Sunday in MILAN. Pretty short change!
Luckily the The Maison Moschino Hotel where we were staying, was situated at the start of the historical Corso Garibaldi and that whole new build area, which is fabulously part of the aperitivo set!
Back to the Maison Moschino. It has a great spa, but being Sunday, it was closed! Ughhh and no comment. I guess I would not have had time anyhow.
No worries because Miriam and her riding partner, Faustus showed us their MILAN on foot and took us to a local cantina to eat Risotto Milanese. Miriam is the only Italian woman who has ridden South America to ALASKA on her own. Woohaaa! Take into account that she is über sexy TOO!

Weniger als 24 Stunden später und es war schon Sonntag in Milano. Das ging schnell!
Glücklicherweise war das Maison Moschino Hotel, indem wir wohnten, am anfang der historischen Corso Garibaldi und der Neubau Gegend, was fabelhafterweise in der Aperitivo Umgebung ist!
Zurück zu Maison Moschino: es hat ein wunderbares Wellness-Centre, das aber, weil es Sonntag war, geschlossen hatte. Bäh und kein Kommentar – ich denke, ich hätte ohnehin keine Zeit dafür gehabt.
Keine Sorge, Miriam und ihr Reitpartner, Faustus, zeigten uns ihr Milano zu Fuss und haben uns in einer lokal Cantina zu Risotto-Milanese eingeladen. Miriam ist die einzige italienische Frau, die von Süd-Amerika nach Alaska geritten ist. Wow! Und über-sexy ist sie AUCH noch!

Calabria isn’t exactly a FASHION region and Cosenza is a beautiful medieval city virtually untouched by earthquakes since the 1300′s, but without a fashionista in sight…but this is where I finally get to try out Mia Bags.
Milan born, Monica Bianco graduated in psychology at UCSB and she started designing in the USA in 1994. From the start her whole family has been involved in the Italian manufacturing process. I got a glimpse of a bag in Fred Segal in LA, but not until visiting CAROFIGLIO DONNA boutique in Cosenza did I get a proper peruse. And there is just no way I can possibly leave Italy without the khaki combo one!
CAROFIGLIO DONNA is on Corzo Mazzini, 71. 87100 Cosensa Tel. 0984 24605
