[18th - 20th April 2008]
Milan is always the same, a beautiful centre of town and a crappy suburb full of crappy houses and generally speaking nasty looking people.
Ten years ago I was living in a similar place, when we were renting at Radstock Road, but I guess that there are times in one's life when you have to experience different walks of life.
This little intro is for the hotel that we had to go for, I am in Milan for work, we have this event together with another company. Basically we are displaying the goodies that we produce in a nice showroom in the centre of Milan. The place where fashion is at its utmost level, the place to be.
Shame that it all was decided 1 month ago and finding a decent accommodation is just impossible! Hence we went for a distant and crappy one...
The event has been quite disappointing; the kind of people that we wanted to see are not coming into the picture at all, but I guess that this was one of the pitfalls of this event.
The other pitfall, but here I am speaking personally, is that I have to stay here all the time, all the weekend gone in something that will hardly produce any results. It's incredibly boring!! And I have to be here 10am-10pm!!
Oh well tomorrow it's going to be the last day, so no big trouble I guess, there are positive sides to this trip, one of them being the fact that I managed to shed more light into the relationships that are in place at the company, allowing me to understand more "behind the scenes" attitudes and behaviours of a lot of people around me...
I won't go too far into details because there are people who work with me who (I have strong grounds to believe) read my blog, which would be perfectly fine if that wasn't done for the pleasure of being nosy to find informations and/or secrets about me.
I guess that I could easily find out who they are, I have all the details that I need, but frankly speaking I cannot be arsed. I do not think that there is anything to find about me here probably because I do not have many things to hide... Sorry!
The event is quite boring, but fortunately the people of the other company are very nice and it's great to chat with them. They brought this typical cheese from Udine (in the north of Italy) that it's great, and goes extremely well with the white wine from the same region that they are serving...
I am quite glad you "cannot be arsed" Lox!! This is quite a relief for me!! :D
Sorry Milan is a chore at this time. Maybe you can visit with Chiara at some time?

Ciao Nigel, yep Chiara wanted to come to Milan but since I am here strictly on business she didn't come in the end... After all I am working also on the Sunday so... It would have been different if we stopped over for the weekend, but maybe another time there will be the chance!
