Zanzana recently went to the Park, for her riding lesson. She will tell you later on about that, because they gave her a new horse 🙂 After that, she went to a Farm, Molino San Giorgio, just in the middle of the Park, to buy milk. One day, a colleague at the Survival Compromise, said: “You can live a whole life without milk!” Yes, but our lives would be much worse then! In fact Zanzana drinks and uses a lot of milk.
The milk produced here is organic: imagine, organic milk at 20 km from Milan! Moreover, this milk is not pasteurized, so you are supposed to boil it before drinking it (even if Zanzana does not), and strange to say, it is cheaper that milk that you buy at the supermarket (unfortunately in Italy organic products are always more expensive than normal ones). It is sold through an automatic machine (this is compulsory here), so you can bring your bottle, refill it, and avoid using a new plastic or glass one.
This time, Zanzana bought also some Yoghurt, even if normally she makes it, but the bottle was already empty at the end of the day 🙂
The Farm has a lot of animals and works also as ‘Didactic Farm’, so that children and school groups can visit it and learn about work in the country, animals, life in the nature. Unfortunately, if you are not on an official visit, you can not get really close to the animals, but you can anyway see donkeys
geese and of course cows. In his picture, you can see the signs sayings that it is forbidden to enter 🙂
Zanzana, as you know, has always lived in the city, and for a really long time she could not imagine herself far away from the fancy life in Milan, and from the trendy streets of the city center. Then one day, she just felt all this was over, and she started to miss a countryside she has’t really ever known. So now, even if she is quite happy, she is in the middle between her regular city life and a deeply missed and until now just imagined life far away from the city, in a farm, in the countryside…
