Lox, Lorenzo... ME!!
A little introduction about the author and the blog itself. Plus contacts and CVs... You never know!

A Selection of the best pictures that I have taken all over the world during the years, all nicely indexed by year and geographical area. Jolly good!

History of this Blog
A collection of all the articles that I have wrote so far, divided by month/year.

I have had the bad idea of writing my e-mail address on the board before, so this time I'll try to prevent some spam to get to me by putting this little image.. Let's hope it does the trick!

A busy week

[Friday 8th June]

And I woke up on Friday, quite tired, looking back at the week that is past and thinking that for a change I had quite a lot to do.

Of course this is positive, it means that all the fights that I have endured in Japan must have paid something, there is still a long way to go before I can call me satisfied but there is a glimpse of hope building up there.

In the meantime, as things are getting better, in full accordance to sod's law, I got a phone call from the owner of a textile company in Biella (near Turin, even further than where I was working before in Varese)...
He's after me since the year 2002, and of course he's offering me a position that doesn't have to do with the textiles only (they are going to die in Italy sooner or later), but also with the garment manufacturing in China (this is the future in this enterprise).
Again I took time, as I want to see how these talks in July with my present employers will develop, but the idea of having to move that that region again, far from Florence is all but appealing... Actually no, I don't really want to go!

It's a certainty that coming back was a great thing for my private life, I really do not wat to loose it again, even if this job seems great under the money (lots) and responsibility point of view....

We'll see in July if the talks are going extremely bad there is always an escape route, maybe we can come to an agreement on how to work from Florence? (nearly impossible, I know the business too well, presence in the company is paramount if you need things to be done properly)...

Well, on the plus side - despite the fact a new job offer might be away from Florence, at least there is the offer! That is a GOOD thing!! :)

Nigel: Definitely, it's better than a "fist in the eye" (as we say here), but as I pointed out there are more cons than pros at taking something like that... We'll see maybe it's a start to go "elsewhere"?

I understand. At least there is "movement" though. Nothing is worse than when nobody calls or emails...
