Breakfast with the Mazzeos was good this morning (lots of food) and I spoke briefly to Raffy by Skype. Later Raffy's dad took me to Malpensa airport (in his black BMW convertible!), and we had a talk about Italian finance and politics while we waited for the check-in desk to open. I thanked him as he left, and I'll be seeing them both again in mid-December.
Now I'm waiting to board the first leg to Singapore. Home soon.
