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!

[Thursday 19th June 2008]

The rest of the trip to Greece was quite good, Athens is a massive city with lots of people and a very chaotic feeling to it. I did not leave the hotel at night, did not venture into the streets and squares, did not sample the food of the "real" restaurants as I usually do. I do not know why but the whole time I had just in my mind the strong desire to go back. Not because I do not like Greece, I love it actually, but I think it´s because I know that on Sunday I must leave again for Asia, for a two weeks trip.

The life that I do not like, distant from family, friends, everything...

Anyways, the flight back to Frankfurt was delayed and I missed the connecting flight to Florence, meaning that I have to wait 5 hours in the lounge. I did get an upgrade in business class from Athens to Frankfurt, but it´s little a consolation compared to the night spent here.

In order to write this piece I had to fight with people wanting to use the only internet capable computer in the bleeding airport, when will the people at Lufthansa decide that it´s time to offer wireless connection for free, AS IT IS IN EVERY CIVILIZED COUNTRY? Internet connections should be always free in public places...

Oh well, one hour to go now, I can feel the stares of the people waiting looking at my back, I´d better get moving now!
