Day Four - Florence first day
Today the Friars spent the day wandering around the beautiful city of Firenze, a.k.a. Florence. Culture, history, and beauty abound in this city , but the one thing that everyone had in common for the day was the tasty treat called gelato. If you've been to Italy, you'll understand why. Gelato is Italian for ice cream, but then again, it's not. Gelato a frozen treat for sure, but a bit different than the American variety. It's displayed at gelaterias everywhere in glass cases filled with deep trays of colorful goodness. It comes in a huge variety of flavors and we've all been devouring our favorite flavors (and sampling new ones) each day.
Here are some team favorite flavors:
Tom Planek: Mint chocolate chip
Coach Jackson: Melon
Coach Kurbec: Cookies
Father Mark: Melon
Carson Desrosiers: Pistachio
Ted Bancroft: Café (coffee)
Coach Cooley: Chocolate
Coach LaFleaur: Cherry
Coach Simon: Caramel
Coach Blaney: Lemon
Kyron Cartwright: Strawberry
Junior Lomomba: Melon
Rodney Bullock: Banana
Kris Dunn: Strawberry
