Hello again.

Hi Bruno, good to see you are going to be again out there on the road. I hope you will have a hell of a great time with thousands of good experiences and no regrets about the job.

Enjoy your trip and keep posting.

Marco.

Good to hear the news! I still have my carnet, just need to extend it! Happily to read and see that the Pakistan visa was not that hard to get!

I'm really interested in how you are doing up there! Keep us posted!!!

Ciao Alex
