POSTCARD #1 - Kristen Boone (May 15, 2007)
The trip here was long!! We first had to bus five hours to Atlanta from Greensboro and THEN we had a very long nine hour flight to Milan. I'm one of the players that doesn't like to fly so a nine hour flight was a tough pill to swallow for me (no pun intended, since I took some medicine to make the flight a little bit better). My mom is with me on the trip so that helped too. :)
