The Giro d’Italia of 2012 is over. Sad, but true! The Giro ended in Milan, or Milano as it’s known by the italians, on Sunday 27th of May. Big Luciano and Odd Pavarotti met the next day in Milan to summarize the Giro of 2012. As you all might remember, the great team of the Giro, Big Luciano and Odd Pavarotti, had been apart for almost a week, before they met again in Milan on Monday 28th of May.
Big Luciano and Odd Pavarotti discussed in detail their impressions of the Giro, but suddenly Odd Pavarotti’s portable computer had a breakdown, which made this blog post somewhat late. It was planned to be posted on Monday 28th of May, but all this computer mess made it impossible to publish until today, Tuesday 29th of May. The great team of the Giro is truly sorry.
First and foremost Odd Pavarotti had to tell Big Luciano about his wonderful journey to fulfill his scientific and scholastic duties in York. Odd Pavarotti reported that York has an opera house, at least three italian restaurants and several pubs.
“Do we really need anything else in life?”, Odd Pavarotti asked rhetorically. Big Luciano agreed.
“And I met some distant relatives of Pavarotti the bird”, Odd Pavarotti said. Big Luciano looked with interest at the picture on one of the other of Odd Pavarotti’s portable devices.
“Splendid!”, said Big Luciano, feeling very English suddenly.
“Splendid!”, Odd Pavarotti repeated, feeling more English than ever before.
They both agreed that the picture was indeed splendid, but suddenly Odd Pavarotti said: “Shouldn’t we talk about the last stretches of the Giro 2012?”
“Domani”, said Big Luciano. Odd Pavarotti understood there of that any further talk about the Giro 2012 was postponed to tomorrow. Or one of the days after that.
But there were one song that Big Luciano just couldn’t stop singing that day. Wonder why … 🙂
So watch this space tomorrow or in some days time, as Big Luciano and Odd Pavarotti will present some Milan centred blog posts to mark the end of Giro d’Italia 2012!
