We are in Budapest and we both love it here.  We are in a great apartment right in the middle of the city.  We have 4 more days of practice here since the MD doesn’t start play until Wednesday.  Here are some pictures from Milan and our visit to the Duomo and Teatro alls Scala.

First some pictures of the apartment, then a couple of links to Milan and Budapest pictures with food included of course!!






Update from Santa Croce

May 13, 2014

Hi Everyone,

Why no blog entries, well…

1)  Thom was sick with cold now getting better (Sasha was sick for a day or two also, difference between old and young)

2)  Internet problems

Sasha has played well in Santa Croce.  Qualified against three good clay players.  Lost to a top 75 player, but played very well yesterday. Now we are off to Milan for the Grade A (Sasha’s first)  Qualifying will be harder than any other tournament he has played thus far.  We have an apartment in Milan, so we can hopefully get some routine going.  We will then go to Budapest for a 32 Grade 2 where Sasha is in the MD.

We went to Pisa today.  Here are pictures from there and from the rest of Italy.  Enjoy!!!
