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!

Doctor Chiara!

[21st January 2008]

Today I will not ramble about my old self, as I usually tend to do, but instead the blog post is dedicated to Chiara.

As a matter of fact she got her degree today, making her a Doctor (in Italy every degree comes with a "Doctor" status) in Economics of Tourism and Resorts.

The degree did last a "little" longer than usually should be, but since Chiara has been working as well as studying (and she didn't really like to study all that much), let's say that it's ok to have finished so late.

The thesis discussion was quite brief and "easy", no sweat broken, in ten minutes squared we were already out of the classroom with the mark given (an hefty 95 out of 110, quite good). The Italian University system still amuses me, there is much hype for the thesis bit, but the exam and discussion is quite simple in the end. On the other side the career of a student here is quite long, there are many hurdles that need to be crossed, so to come at the end means that the student showed perseverance and of course some degree of "hard" work.

Going back to the thesis, in the end we had a little aperitif with all the guests invited, and after three hours we were finally going back home for a quick dinner...

Congratulations Doctor Chiara, this post is for you, I hope that you will have many more happy days like this one!
