I touched down at Malpensa airport at around 6am local time this morning. Italian customs and immigration are a breeze compared to Australia, and I was through in about 30 minutes.
I took the exress train from the airport to Milan Cadorna, and am having a little breakfast on the Via Dante, before I set off for the Duomo, the main cathedral. Then it'll be back to the airport to meet John Kinder from Perth. I'll get a few pictures and I should get a chance to upload some tonight at the hotel in La Thuile.
