Today began with us driving to the Sforza Castle to meet our tour guide. Our tour guide got on the bus with us and drove around Milan as she explained everything about the city. After that we got off the bus in front of the Sforza Castle and our tour guide led us through the castle explaining the meaning of certain structures inside the castle. The castle itself was very interesting and it was also interesting to see wild cats that live inside the castle. We then left the castle and continued our tour of Milan on foot. After finishing the tour we ate lunch and then had some free time to go shopping. After we were done shopping we got on the metro and headed back to the hotel. We then met the group later that day in the lobby of the hotel. We loaded onto the bus and headed toward the AC Milan vs Juventus soccer game. The game was such a good experience and I was even very surprised to find a group of police men with riot shields standing outside the stadium. Today was a very exciting day and a good day to learn about the Italian culture.

Today started with a quick breakfast at the hotel. We then got onto the bus and headed to a meeting with the Series B soccer marketing people. This was a very interesting meeting and I got to learn a lot about how they are struggling to market their Series B team. I also enjoyed talking with them after the meeting about the differences between going to college in the United States and going to college in Italy. After the meeting we ate a quick lunch and then boarded the bus again to go to the Formula One race track. We got to experience a drive around the track and even got to tour the building right next to the track. Today was a very interesting day and I must say I had some good experiences.
