Hello again, our faithful followers! It has been another glorious day in Italy. We started our day early with breakfast at the hotel (which means it was the last chance to stock up on croissants and nutella packets). And then we were on our way to beautiful Florence, with a four hour bus ride full of fun! Our bus ride games included drawing pictures (yes, we are Harvard students). The beautiful scenery outside was distracting, however, as we passed through breathtaking Tuscany.

We arrived in Florence and had a brief half hour to try some of Italy's famous pizza, and then we embarked on a walking guided tour through the city. We saw the gigantic cathedral (fourth largest in Europe!) And the fake David, and passed numerous leather goods, always being sure to keep our belongings very close to us. We spent a lot of our time looking for leather purses, but settled with leather friendship bracelets :) And of course, we had to stop by the most heavenly place on the face of the Earth... The Gelato Stand. After our walk through the picturesque city of Florence, we left for the soccer field.

The game against ACF Firenze was a battle, ending in a 2-1 victory by Harvard. Both amazing goals were scored by Tucky... And we are still left to question What Is That Magic Spray? Now we are back on the bus after having a scrumptious dinner at a local restaurant by the field, and are excited for our ventures tomorrow!!
