En route the airport, I met a few neuroscientists from Johns Hopkins that were in Luca for a conference. They were also headed to the airport. The lady was Filipina as well. Well when I got on the bus, I asked if it went to Centrale and kinda just headed to the back. I forgot to pay, but it turns out that no one really pays for the bus in Italy. I felt I was a little bit owed because of the inconvenience in Bologna as well. Well if I ever want to do some neuroscience research, I've got a link now.
At the airport, I had to get the liquids and gels off my handcarry. And the line was already long and people were already behind me. So I just opened my luggage and did some rearranging. So then this older lady just rolls her bag right in front of me. I said excuse me, but she didn't respond. Well at this point, I decided that I had a better idea than trying to communicate with her and get her to go behind everyone else in line. I tried to stand as close as possible to her and stare her down. I had nothing else to do in line either. I have to admit as well that I didn't smell that great because Pisa was hot, I was wearing a sportsjacket, and I had just done an hour rush for taking photos. So I definitely wasn't pleasant to be standing near. She kept looking back at me too and I just stared right at her. The worst part is that she herself even opened up her bag and took out all of her gels and liquids right then
Slept on the plane because I had been taking power naps the entire trip back anytime I got a chance. Got to France, slept on the bus, got to metro, slept on the train. Got to the hotel and all was finally good. Back in Paris.
