[Sunday 17th February 2008]

Actually the post should be referred to Friday and Saturday as well. On Friday I had the chance to go out for dinner with Kutsunugi san, Mr. Hwang and Paolo Bini (sales responsible for a textile company in Prato).
Six months ago, I managed to hook up Kutsunugi san with this company (called Bartolini), as they were looking for a good agent in Japan, and surely Kutsunugi san was the right person for the job.
Mr.Hwang was also my agent for the Korean market, so in a way it was a great re-union that I really enjoyed. My relationship with Kutsunugi san is very close, he and Keiko (his wife) are like a second family to me, but also Mr.Hwang is a very close person to me, a sort of older brother, he believed in me from the very first time we met, and for that I will always be grateful.

On Saturday me and Chiara took Kusunugi san and Keiko to a pizza place, it was like going back 2 years ago, when I was working for Ratti, having dinner together telling jokes and everything, it really helped me taking my mind off other issues that are best going untold for the moment.
Still it makes me look back at the time in Ratti with a different eye, if only that company was in Florence I would have probably never left it.

We got talking about studies, and here is the title of the post "Bokkeisai".

Bokke = Stupid
Keisai= Economics

You do the maths... :D

Yes in the end all the Economics that me and Kutsunugi san studied (and also Chiara), was really never used, we got talking how when you are young you are told that they are so incredibly important, and in truth they are to have some doors open in front of you, but generally speaking we all got jobs thanks to skills that we never thought would have make any difference, and that we never learnt.

On Sunday I saw them off to the airport, I am not happy, now that I am writing, I miss times gone, I miss working with them, but the good side is that we see each other, not everything is lost at least!
