Dinner in Italy

Tuesday, May 15th, 2007

I had intended to post here again during the conference in Italy, but my laptop battery was a bit too low.  The Swiss plugs don’t work in Italy, and I couldn’t find anyone with the same type of laptop cable as me.  

Anyway, that’s life.

On my last night in Italy I was taken out for dinner with Umit and Stefano from Hacklab Cosenza.  They decided to introduce me to some local dishes.  There was chestnut bread, bean and mushroom soup, local sausage, grilled potato and a nice rose wine from the region.  Stunning stuff.  I cannot recommend the Cosenza food highly enough.

The next morning it was a 5am start for the long drive to my airport.  We arrived exactly on time and before I knew it I was in the air.  In the blink of an eye the weather changed from sunny South Italy into a rather gloomy Swiss Spring.  Ah well.
