We just arrived in Milan, Italy yesterday morning!

After 10 hours of travel we enjoyed cappuccinos on Lake Como and got to explore the city. We later got the chance to see the likes of David Beckham and Rhonaldhino in the A.C. Milan vs. Chievo soccer game. It was a very exciting game ending with a goal scored by A.C. Milan to win it in the last few minutes. Unfortunately, we saw David Beckham tear his achilles tendon, putting his career on hold through the World Cup this summer.

Today, we had a great practice in the morning and after that we crossed the border into Switzerland for a few hours. We are now spending our last few hours exploring Lake Como and enjoying fresh gelato.
