The photo below is from the McDonald’s located in the shopping center next to the cathedral in Milan, Italy. You’re probably wondering why I would be posting a photo of the McDonald’s instead of the cathedral (which will be coming later, the cathedral is extremely impressive) but once you look at the dessert display you can understand why. I’ve never seen a McDonald’s quite like it, when I usually hear McDonald’s I’m thinking greasy burgers and salty fries, not delicious looking croissants, cheesecake, and gigantic muffins. On top of that, the building the McDonald’s was in was very fancy looking, only adding to the strangeness of seeing the common fast food restaurant in a not so ordinary way. Maybe if the McDonald’s here looked more like this, I might actually go there once in a while.

I moved into a new place today and it’s a bit strange having no internet access, no cable tv, no furniture, basically nothing. Kind of a strange feeling starting completely new, but strange in a good way. Anyway, I found just enough internet to post tonight.
This photo is from Portofino restaurant, found on many of Royal Caribbean’s ships. Portofino is a fine Italian restaurant (hence the name, after the small town in northern Italy) which serves delicious appetizers, main courses, and desserts. My favorite of the desserts was this sampler which included miniature versions of most of the options of the dessert menu. It was not only a visually appealing dessert, as you can see, but was delightful on the taste buds as well, providing a variety of decadent flavors, from the flour-less chocolate cake to the classic tiramisu.
