Today was a very beautiful day. As usual, we woke up early in the morning, 8 a.m., and had breakfast as a team in the hotel. Then we went to shot around. Our trip is going very well, we are having great time and we are getting to know each other better. What makes this trip very special, are these tremendous places we visit everyday, and the new people we meet.

Today was different from the other days. We visited the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa. Many people are coming from all over the world to visit these towers. The Leaning Tower was surrounded by many other buildings and street vendors. The tourists who come to visit have access to buy souvenirs and to see these famous building.

A little story about the Leaning Towers: the Tower was not supposed to lean. During the construction, once they get to the third floor in, the tower start leaning then, but they keep building until the eighth floor.

It feels so great to be here. Visiting the famous Leaning Tower make us feel so special. I would love to thank everybody who made this trip possible for us. Also this trip helps us as a team because we get to know each other better during the two weeks here in Italy. And basketball-wise, we are having fun beating these teams by big scores.

It feels great to be WILDCAT right now here in ITALY! Ciao!
