Our last day in Italy was spent mostly on cleaning and travel. We got up at 5 to get ready to go and after making many pots of coffee, got to work cleaning the church, sweeping, mopping, wiping down surfaces and raking the leaves outside. When we finished we took a bus ride to Milan, than a couple metro rides and another bus trip to get to the airport. After getting through security we spent the rest of the morning relaxing or shopping while we waited for our plane to go home, and then tried mostly unsuccessfully to get past the boarding pass checkers with the rest of our bags/drumming supplies. Thankfully they were merciful and didn’t charge us anything extra.
After that we just had to fly home, time that was mostly spent reading, talking or cataloging the good qualities of our friends, get past security, and take the train and bus rides home.
As with most travel days it was fairly boring and tiring, but it was also nice to be home.
