Even More Last Minute Details

After a nice walk-through for the offensive line this evening we got home relatively early to pack only to discover that our water was still turned off in the entire building at Malibu.

Since it was after 9:00 p.m. and we need to be at the airport by 5:00 a.m. to catch our flight to the game in Milan, desperate measures were called for!

We assessed all of the possibilities and decided that the best option was to drive to the Baia Verde Grand Hotel, pay the customary 3 euros for an hour of internet service and then take turns using their bathrooms to take the equivalent of a sponge bath.  Fortunately the bathrooms in this very nice hotel are individual rooms with a sinks, a toilet and ample room to bathe.  MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

The nice thing is that we will all three be gone from Aci Castello until next Friday.  The reason I say this is that we have found out that things like plumbing issues do NOT get handled on weekends.  There is a very good chance that if we stayed in Aci Castello we would be without water until at least Monday.

I mentioned that I was taking advantage of the BYE week to visit Milan, Prague and Vienna.  Christie and Jason are going to Milan, Lake Como, Venice and Barcelona while Brandon and Matt are going to tour Milan, the Swiss Alps and Venice.

It should be a great week for all of us but we still have a BIG game to play first in Milan!
