MOVE MOVE MOVE!

MOVE MOVE MOVE ... AND MOVE AGAIN ... this is what America is all about ... I have never seen so many people cris crossing a country like in US ... everybody move ... when I meet a new person one of my questions is always ... where are you originally from? ... fascinating ... especially if you live in big cities ... I lived in SEATTLE, WA and now down here in LOS ANGELES, CA ... and I have rarely met a person born, raised and living in the same place ... today was YANN moment to move ... problems with his roomies ... that sucks ... roomies are not always good ones ... and if you want a suggestion ... avoid to have roomies of the other sex ... can be cool as idea ... but at the end stinks ... I mean ... doesn't necessarily sucks all the time ... but you are easily going to have problems with roomies if they are of the other sex ... anyways ... today was YANN moment to move ...we did help him ... Leif, as a good German, took it very seriously ... and he showed up ... dressed up like a professional mover ... he claimed that when you involve a GERMAN you can only expect 100% COMMITMENT ... of course ... because I am ITALIAN ... I wear flip flop and short pants ... we went to rent a U-HAUL truck ... a kind of icon for whoever wants to move in US ... you rent ... you move .. you return it ... the one that we got today was not particularly new ... here is YANN complaining about the front BUMPER ...

... but at least it had all the possible warnings on the dashboard ...

... and here some pictures of the moving itself ... and of course LEIF was the absolute showman there ...

... here is when he found a sword that YANN won in a fencing contest here in US ... kind of MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE position ...

... here is YANN finally smiling ... closing for the last time the door of the garage ... a chapter is closed and a new one opens ...

... and here the moving in .. in the new place ... still in HERMOSA ... but more towards MANHATTAN ... but really with a gorgeous view from the roof deck ...

... and here is LEIF after a beer ... getting a ride like he was in a CABLE CAR in SAN FRANCISCO ...

... and here the last piece of LEIF show ... really a funny roomie ... I can't really ask for anything more than this ...

... the moving was fun ... but I am tired now ... :o
