Here is Italy in relation to Europe.
And this is Italia itself. Milano is in the northwest corner, near the Swiss border.
And my first host family lives just west of Parco Sempione (in the upper left corner). Downtown!!!!
That's it for now, but I promise to post plenty of pictures in the future once I actually have photos to share! Exactly 30 days from today I will be on a plane out of DC. :)
