Florence: Mukki Day

posted by Jamila




We saw the advertisement on the side of our milk cartons. A Mukki Fest. This weekend!

So we mapped the location.

And we found a cab, and they drove us to the perimeter of the city.



When the factory's architecture loomed over the horizon, S squealed with delight.



When we spotted the hordes of balloons, we realized we were the only attendees who did not bring children.



But we stayed.



For the free ice cream.



To see the cows.



To pet the cows.



Certainly, these were happy cows.


J: Do you even like milk?
B: Not really. This just sounded like fun.
