I very much regret not to be able to follow Luca to England this time also because I so miss the only opportunity I had to
see you and Josh again as I understand you would not come to Italy. It is a great pity, I was so much looking forward to

me to get separated from.
Do enjoy your journey and scientific meetings as much as
