I woke up early that morning. My e-mail read, "Do you want to go to Milan today?" I then had 8 hours to get myself prepared for international travel and get myself to the airport. I ran through the airport. I know now how to get through JFK within 30 minutes. I ran through the TSA, excusing myself through the lines, sped through the airport with my shoes untied, belt undone, and made it right as the door was closing. In 10 hours, I was in a new world.
In between work, I ate the best pasta, window shopped at the fanciest stores, had the best pasta/spritz, and took a nap by the canals.
