Water Polo

So I was walking through Piazza della Signoria the other day when those trumpets started playing again... after the usual procession of traditionally clad, trumpet playing, flag waving men walking through the streets I was surprised to see a group of young blond men, in Australia's traditional green, gold and Havianas, scuffing their feet and chatting amongst themselves while following the trumpets into the Piazza. They were followed by Canada, China, Italy, Montenegro, Serbia and USA, the other countries to be competing in the FINA World League Water Polo Championships.

More by luck than any planning, I went to see the match between Serbia and Italia and. never having had anything to do with the game before, I actually found it really interesting. It was a really close game but unfortunately Italy lost by 1 point...
