Farewell To Alpago

Day 15. 5 July 2006

Wednesday. Two and a half hours after I go to bed, and with dawn already broken Emi returns to the nursery school and goes to bed. Just one and a half hours later, to a chorus of seven o’clock bells he is getting up again to shower and be ready to leave for work, taking three our number to the airport as he goes.

I get up too to see Jenny, Sarah-Jane and Sarah off. Carol has left a note for them to wake her before they go, although there is a certain amount of uncertainty as to who is going in the first trip. Sarah-Jane has, having opted stay out all night, only just got in. She throws the rest of her belongings into her bags and goodbyes are said.

Following the departure of three of our number I return to my room, considering a return to sleep…
