In a few hours I will leave Chicago with a Lufthansa flight to Munich. Tomorrow morning at 7AM I have a flight Munich-Venice which will allow me to arrive home at 9ish, unpack, pack another time, pick Filippo up, give a kiss to Mariarosa and Ilaria, and head to the airport again. There, another flight to Munich awaits us at 3PM, alas… And then from Munich to Paris, where I wil attend to the CDF week from Monday to Friday in the unusual company of my son.
I did try to convince Filippo that he could travel by himself to Munich if we asked for help from the Lufthansa check-in crew in Venice (I however do not know the details: did anybody here have to fly underage relatives alone?), so that I could leisurely wait for him in Munich and avoid two useless flights… But it did not work: he almost started crying when he saw I was tentatively serious. Filippo is 8, and although he is a quite smart kid, he is… well, still a kid. So I reassured we will be together for the full week in Paris. He will of course bring his game-boy and a lot of other things, to keep quiet during the talks…
