Francesco requested via FB, (that being our only form of communication) if I wanted to meet up and go to the beach by moped. I received this message two days prior to day 15. I responded, "I would love to go to the beach! Meet me at the Re Di Roma circle at 1:30!" I hadn't checked my e-mail since this response and I had no phone to confirm, for some reason it seemed chancy that he would come. I showed anyway. I figured if he appears it was meant to be, if not then it isn't. I stood in the circle for 7 minutes and sure enough he was there.
He took me to a different beach than the others I had ventured to. It was more relaxed, on the fringe of being a hippie beach. I liked it! There was an air military base in a close-ish range, so jets were constantly flying above us as if 'Top Gun' pilots were flying them. Francesco kept saying, "They don't usually fly like this -- it must be because of you."
Apologies Franchesco. (!)
