The main entrance of the castle
Outside of the entrance there were some crazy street performers. The top one is sitting on a soccer ball on top of a pole held in one hand by the man on the bottom who is sitting on a glass jar. The were just sitting there static, who knows for how long.
from inside the castle
Some castle's have moats with water, this one has a moat of stray cats

After all this wandering we were getting hungary. I heard tip from one of my old roomates about a cool coffee shop in Milan, after looking them up, it turned out they had an eight course dinner special that night, so that sounded like a good thing to try. First was some Jean-paul Deville champagne
Next, was basically a vegetable medley, but with 15 different elements and it was amazing
Next was a sort of tomato paste with stewed yellow tomatoes, basil and several other things I can't remember
this course was branzino (sea bass) with sea urchins, and a spinach cream sauce
Then came the some sort of meat? haha well it was marinated for 3 hours, then roasted and dried slightly and served with a light mustard sauce on thin slices of toasted bread doused in olive oil
Then came a shot of yogurt with ginger to cleanse the palate
Ah dessert, dark chocolate mouse, with rasberry jam, and white chocolate cream, not nearly enough of this, so they have us another plate
Top it off with some really good espresso and some cookies. An excellent meal in a really cool cafe. Going to try and head back in the morning for this before leaving Milan, so good.
