Now a new week-end in Italy. Two weeks have passed quickly. I think I have done a lot so far but there is also much to look forward to. In two weeks my first and best visit, with Italian derby as one of the highlights (Juventus-Inter).
This week I had a workout and two games. The most enjoyable job was with the guys at work. Game Time 22:00 every Thursday! We run a raven like series with CA13 law. There is one match a week throughout the year. The series ends with a playoff. Right now we are in the middle, something must change!
This week, we met a young team. Average age was perhaps 22. They were fast, technical and feeble. It meant a lot filming (in my eyes). The first goal was my fault. Took me a hand in the penalty area -> first penalty. 0-2 also came on a penalty and a new hand (not from me). In the second half worth it though Revange. We lay on and managed to turn to 3-3.
Today I have been at Altin - a guy I play football with. His wife cooked (very good!) And we played on "Stryktipset" (Gothenburg and Kalmar will hopefully cross). He also took me up into the mountains outside Savona, where he has a piece of land where he grows olive trees. Very interesting and beautiful.
The output from this is that I've learned how to do to make olive oil. It is the black olives to use. In Japan do oil on the green olives - maybe not to mention what Altin thought about it ...
Unfortunately, it rained hard - so there was not much time outdoors. May take a new weekend ahead, planned to offer myself as labor.
Way home from Altin I realized that there was something pågång. The street was cordoned kind and full of policemen. Sure enough, after a bit around the interrogation, it was now time for the Milan-San Remo . A race in Italy for the elite. Cyclists Fabian Cancellara and Mark Cavendish was with, both have previously won this contest. This year it snowed in Milan. Participants were therefore go by bus to the coast and the start outside Genoa. The race was therefore much shorter, only 15 mil
I was there with camera and took a movie. Marveled at how incredibly fast it goes! Met at Fabio - a local cyclist - in the audience and began to talk to him. He runs a club in Savona. Maybe some cycling in Italy ahead.
Another activity of the weekend was water polo. This is the biggest sport in Sanvona. The team is 3rd in the league and traditionally very good. This year the team is young and they aim to win the league next year. Italy is apparently reigning world champion in water polo league so high class.
Looking at water polo was kind like watching handball. Much goal back and forth and around the same rules. One difference, however, was that it was very hot and humid in the hall .
