“Closed for Holidays” and interesting first day away, August 27 2014

Dear all,

this is to let you know that in the coming weeks I will not post about the markets in this blog (well I may post something every time and then…;-).

I have taken a couple of weeks off the markets to regenerate and rest. This will also allow me to restart fully energized and capable of committing on quality and ready to over-deliver in the first coaching course that I will be starting at the beginning of October.

Here are some recent pictures of the first day of my trip (mainly spent traveling from Toronto, ON to San Francisco, CA). However I was lucky enough to have a few hours to spend in down town S.Francisco tonight, and this is what I have discovered:

The pictures above were taken at the historic “Caffe Trieste” in the Italian district of San Francisco (Columbus and Vallejo st). The street looks really like a common Italian street, and people actually speak Italian!
This is the place where Francis Ford Coppola used to go when he was writing the script the famous “The Godfather“!!!

The last picture shows Francis Ford Coppola working with Papa Gianni (owner of Caffe Trieste) and Gianfranco Giotta. I suppose the Italian guys did probably supported Francis explaining to him how the Mafia works in Italy….

In the other pictures I am with new friends: a cop who graciously offered to take a picture outside the cafe and Aaron, a young passionate political activist who opposed Chavez in the last few years, now living in USA….

Only the first day, but it has been intense and interesting so far.

Tomorrow I will pick up a Harley Davidson and will start a 5-day trip in Northern California….

If you are interested, come back to the blog for more pictures, commentary and up to date information on my trip.

Have a good continuation of the week

Talk Soon
