April 17th - We started out today by buying some Italian anti-histamines. Allergies have been affecting us since Florence and we should have bought these earlier.

We went to the National Museum of Science and Technology. This is one of the best science related museums I've seen, much better than the ones in SF or San Jose. In addition to a cool gallery showing models based on devices described in Leonardo Da Vinci's notebooks, they had sections on astronomy, clockmaking, telecommunications, energy, metallurgy, etc, all with interesting displays in both Italian and English.

After that we headed back to one of the pedestrian only shopping districts to have lunch and so Stacey could spend some more time at a store she found that carries a lot of things she really likes.

After a while, we had to interrupt that to go on a Milan city tour that we had pre-booked, mainly because it included a visit to Leonardo's Last Supper. In addition, it included the Duomo and Sforza Castle.

Then we went back to shopping for a little while, had supper and then did our final packing for our flight back to San Francisco tomorrow.
