Milan Monday (35): summertime waterside fun

People who do my kind of work (including translations and text revisions) get the worst loads dumped on them at this time of year (and just before Xmas) because everyone else is winding down for the summer.

Gotta run, but didn't want to leave you without at least a quick "Milan Monday," in honor of all the activities, including sandy fun, planned at Milan's artificial lake, the "Idroscalo" ("Water landing") called because it originally was intended for a landing for seaplanes: begun in 1928 in a giant hole in the ground (results of digging for gravel and sand), built in 1935-36, enlarged in 1958-63 and revised in the 1990s.

For more info about this summer's activities there, see my:

I created this summertime fun needlepoint diagram based on a free clipart of Microsoft (MC900024619) by uploading it into StitchPainter, then changing it into a BMP to share with you for your personal, non-commercial fun.
