A day to relax

CSU beat the Italian Junior National Team in all
four sets they played.
It's Kaila checking in!! Today was our second day in beautiful Milan! We started off our day by spending some time on our own by exploring the area surrounding our hotel or doing whatever we wanted. Some of us shopped some more in the little mall right across from our hotel and others took a much-needed nap!! Later in the afternoon, we all met back up at the training center where we ate lunch. Lunch was the best today! We had shish kebabs with steak, chicken, pork and some veggies! All of us really enjoyed that lunch!! After lunch we had some time to relax before the match against the Italian junior national team. 

The Rams at dinner in downtown Milan.
The match against the Italians went really well for us. We played four sets, and won all four of them!! In the last set, Bestie and Marlee were our outsides and Michelle played on the right, and they all dominated against the Italian team!! After winning the match we all went back to the hotel to dress up for dinner. Dinner was really good. It was Asian food, which was completely different from the food we had been having. For desert we all had gelato and then walked around to finish our night!

I have been having such a great and awesome time on this trip! I'm so blessed to be able to travel and play volleyball in Europe with these girls and coaches!!! I'm soo excited for the fall season! 

God bless,
Kaila Thomas
