Today I got another Xmas gift from a business partner, MTV. It wasn’t really spontaneous, I had to ask for it, but it was nice to receive it anyway: a CD/DVD box by Elisa (not my favorite artist but the best I could choose among). Last Saturday I also got a Xmas gift, from Fabio. To meet him I went to Milan by train in the afternoon. When I arrived to Milano Centrale I took some pics of my favorite train station and then the bus 60 (which was awfully crowded) to Piazza 5 Giornate, where my good friend Pigi lives. Actually I didn’t see Pigi for almost 8 years but I accidentally found him again on flickr and I paid him and his gorgeous boyfriend, Franco, a visit. He’s kinda an institution in Milan: one of the first bears ever, always fighting for gay rights and author of many articles on the magazine Pride. Vadim was supposed to join us but he had a bad cold and he eventually stayed at home. Too bad, I don’t see him since I went to Moscow almost 2 years ago. Later we went together to the next Coin to buy some Alessi stuff Pigi needed as Xmas presents: we met Fabio there. When he finished working I left Pigi and Franco and I went with Fabio to a Japanese dinner where 10 other people were waiting for us. Marco, my oldest gay friend, was there with his new lover, Olivier from Lyon, a very nice guy. The evening was pleasant and the food great (but don’t ask me the place again, I forgot the name, it’s somewhere between Gambara and De Angeli), I even had some glasses of plum and rose schnapps 😛 Am I turning into a drinker?
