Back to Italy. Girlfriend, warm sun, pizza... is there
anything else a man could possibly want? ;)
Now if I only had my luggage... :/
...plus some 100% european dessert and coffee ;)
Nonetheless I survived, and in two days I'll be back in my
ready to enjoy the Christmas vacations with my girlfriend Daniela and our friends. Happiness!
What else? I'm waiting for my J-1 visa. I also took a look at my future home here in freezeland. It's very nice!
And I wrote an event-driven engine to simulate the dynamics of granular assemblies.
I love to work here! :)
Spent most of the day digging into data sets. Attented a
couple of good talks.
I also created a few beautiful images using IBM's OpenDX software.

Yesterday I took a few pictures from the plane. They look nice, especially one shot of Manhattan at sunset, taken during takeoff from Newark.
Since I'm hungry (4pm!) I'll go eat something at my favourite chinese restaurant in town. Slurp!
Came back from Padua. Went to Rome, attended the LiMe, didn't quite like it, came back. Went to Padua, long meeting, came back. One more trip to Padua, then I'll be ready to leave for Ann Arbor - hopefully!
