We interrupt the travelogue with a return to the real world. After clearing my email account of 378 junk email messages (really, how much Viagra can one person order online?), I spent the morning getting caught up with things.
In the afternoon, I visited my Student Buddy through Big Brothers for the last time. It's more than just the summer break at school, this time it's a final goodbye. I brought back a Ferrari lanyard and some Euro coins to give my buddy as a souvenir and remembrance. We finished our time together with our usual: basketball and board/card games. I am the reigning Uno champ!
