cool hi from milan

hi all.

have a few moments and access to the internet (and therefore FF) and thought i would drop a line. of most interest...i went to Maranello yesterday and looked around Galleria Ferrari...mmmmmmmmmmmm

i have now driven in Milan and it is a bloody nightmare. it is great fun watching it, but learning to drive a car on the wrong side f the road, on the wrong side of the car and trying to read pissy little street signs and also negotiate italian dirving styles is too much.

the autostrada is great. sat on 130 all day, i am not sure what the limit is, and was getting passed by cars that are absolutely flying. some i guess at 180. i drove 200kms to modena and back again and not one speed camera. driving to rome tomorrow and will sit my 1.7 TDi on 140-150 all the way.

will post later on to let you know how that leg of the trip goes.

oh yeah...got some nice escort models in paris.
