V.I.P. Passes for Stage 14 !!

I keep thinking that "things don't get better than this"

But then they do.

If being at yesterday's Stage 13 was a dream-come-true, then today was the icing on the cake.

Today, I was one of four team members who were escorted by Lorenzo to the partenza of Stage 14 in Campi Bisenzo. Little did I know that Lorenzo would have V.I.P. passes for all of us! It was a pandemonium of intense, pumped-up fans. The fever was high. The music was vibrant, the sponsor caravans honking their horns, distributing free goodies, t-shirts, caps, espresso and other souvenirs.The excitement in the air was contagious. Partaking in this event, getting so close up to De Luca, Petacchi, Leipheimer, Sastre, Simoni, Pellizotti, seeing them live in front of me...what a lifetime experience.

I am lucky to be living in this city, in this time, filled with new surprises almost every day.

Thank you , Lorenzo for the V.I.P. Pass, for being so concerned about other's happiness, and for being a good friend!
