This afternoon, as I was biking to school, I looked at the horizon and saw something I had not yet seen from Milan, since I arrived a month ago: the Alps. It was quite a surprise.
Suddenly, today, they were there, clear and majestic. My phone’s camera does not do these mountains justice.
I am not quite sure why I had not yet seen the Alps. My best hypotheses are that:
- It was an unusually clear day.
- We had had a frost for the previous few nights, so the leaves were off of most trees, which hitherto may have blocked the view.
- I usually ride to school in the mornings, when the sun is behind the mountains, obscuring them. This afternoon, the sun was to my back, illuminating the mountain faces in extraordinary detail.
I went up to the seventh floor at the top of LITA, our laboratory-learning facility, and took a few pictures from inside one of the labs.
The weather was extraordinary today: sunny, crisp, and about 13º C, 55º F. On the ride home, I breathed in the fresh air, and took another photo along my bicycle path.
Milan is a beautiful place to live.
