NIN in Milan!!

On Friday 26 went to Milan to see Nine Inch Nails live at the Idroscalo park..I have few words to describe how it was..may use just one: amazing!!!
This was kinda rock festival, played Korn and Mars Volta too, but I only cared about my beloved NIN. Of course the weather was ugly as ever,but I think it's quite normal..all the times I go to a concert it's raining, or it seems the sky is falling down or it's bloody cold/hot. Never a sunny day/warm still night..never. But it's ok all the same, I got used to such extreme climatic conditions! I remember last year in Berlin, it was the 8 of July and there were 12°..bloody cold,I was freezing my ass off!!
Well,this time things went more or less the same was raining,it was not hot at all, but fortunately we warmed all up as soon as they started playing.

Here some pictures taken before,during and after the concert. Look, Trent is bloody cool!! He rocks and his music too. He said this is his last tour in a while. What does it mean? He's gonna take a break and then come back? I don't know this english expression and, since I'm afraid I could not see him for a long time, I'd like to know what "in a while" exactly mean:-/!

Me and Lara..

The landscape at the Idroscalo park at 5 was still sunny and hot,but just for a while...

The stage..

Stormy black sky behind the scenes and the trees(8 pm)

Trent Reznor!! Or better, God on stage:-)! Wow guys,I had the thrills when saw him..he's so incredibly hot! On stage he gave all his best,he's a real artist,played with his hands and his heart!

Trent again

And again!! Here he's playing "The Hand That Feeds"..

I was in second row, right in front of the bass player (that was really nice,btw!) let you imagine when the crowd started jumping and dancing! I forgot to take a pic of my feet after the concert, but I can describe them. Completely destroyed!! My black shoes turned white,covered with dust, mudd and grass.

Anyway, this is the portrait of our ugly faces after the concert:

Is it clear enough?
Here you'll see the video of The Fragile (asap,it depends on how long it will take to upload it-_-), best song ever played..soo sentimental, was almost crying:-)

That's all for now...let's keep in touch,bye!

24h in Florence!

Hi all,
as I promised I've come back to talk about my last escapade around Italy! I don't know about you, but sometimes it happens that I only feel like giving all up,my homework, my courses, the work and my family, and jumping on the first train (or flight!) that passes near me!
Well,in the past this happened quite often but I seldom could do what my feet were asking me, mainly for money reasons-_-! Now that I've got sort of part time job I am much more free to do what I want,and despite the fact that I have loads of exams to do, I prefer to listen to my instinct, pack my things and go!
This time I decided to go to Florence to visit the city and have a relaxing weekend..I planned to stay away for 2 days but things went not that kind and my fab weekend turned out to be a 24h rush from home to Florence,back and forth..hectic,fast paced, but nice all the same!
Here some pictures!
Rainy day..bloody cold!!

Way to railway station..10 minutes before the train leaves..I'm 10 kms far from the to find parking!!
My travelling buddies..
And my safety bag:-)
Venetian country landscape outside the window..

In Florence now: my hotel..outer pretty ugly, but sooo nice inside!!

The bathroom, so bright and white I couldn't believe my eyes!!

The Old Bridge and the river Arno..

Old statues near the Uffizi gallery

I went in Florence mainly because I wanted to visit the Uffizi gallery so..booked a tour for 17.30,bought a guide and psichologically set myself for a cultural afternoon. Well,when arrived at the check-in I was told official tours stop at 18.00 so I would have had only less than a half regular tour..but in their website they said I could do the check-in until 18.00..incredibly annoying situation! These things can happen in Italy only-_-!! So I decided to leave the Uffizi and shift to a more interesting tour..the shopping tour!!
This is HM. The biggest one I've seen in Italy so far..and this is Matthew Williamson's star collection for HM! Woah,drop dead gorgeous, wanted to buy everything!!

U-huu, stains everywhere. Love 'em, savage cheetah passion!!

This is Simone, my trip mate..and personal shopping assistant:-)!

And this is me
Then came back and got ready for a real Tuscany dinner..that is Fiorentina steak and red farm wine! Absolutely yummy,hehe!!

I stop here to post pictures. I hate the way blogger upload them, starting from above instead from the bottom, it's a real loss of time and patience (isn't it absurd??)
Well, you know, when I came back I felt better for a while but then started thinking about my next destination..Berlin!! Dunno when to leave,maybe around the half of July.
Anyway,I'll let you know about my future plans:-)
See you soon,got to post a lot of things,ouch!!
Have fun,bye!
