This is - probably - the last post here for 2017. The weather is a clear hint that autumn is coming. All of us will leave campus in the next hours.

It was a real pleasure and honor to work with you. Thank you to all of you. All the best for your future life and career. Please feel free to contact me at any time if you think that I can be useful.

I am looking forward to hearing from you. Have a good journey, wherever it takes you. I hope that we will see each other again, sometime, somewhere, somehow.Take care.

Kind regards
