I'm just back from taking Nicole to the airport with Alex. Her flight is scheduled to leave in about an hour. It's already strange not having her here, since I got so used to hanging out with her all the time. It'll be a bit of an adjustment, but fortunately I'm all settled in now so hopefully it won't be too bad.
Last night we had a barbecue on our roof terrace in Nicole's honor. We were planning to keep it small... maybe 10-12 people. Next thing we new, we had more than 30! Marco spent a long time working the grill, cooking everything, and we all agreed that at our next barbecue (this Saturday) everyone will have to cook their own food so he doesn't have to do it all. Here's a photo of most of the group.
Here are some lovely pictures of Nicole and me:
