First of all, I'd like to thank Rutika ma'am. She was the reason why everything fell in place and we all could have such a good time. She has to be one of the most patient women I've ever come across. She handles attention seeking kids to us difficult teenagers very well. On the whole, I had a blast. It certainly was one of my most memorable trips. Everything was organized exceptionally well. I have absolutely no complains or regrets. For the entire trip, I was surrounded by all these amazing people which made the experience even better.
Yes, I did cry at the airport and not all of it was because of my results. I really was going to miss all the people I had met and it had all got over too soon.
It was a trip of a lifetime and I did learn a lot on the way. I'd never trade these memories for anything. Finally, I'd like to thank Rutika ma'am again and the entire Pacers team. I really had the best time.
"Pacers" Mumbai organised Bishop Cotton Girls Basketball team from Bangalore to participate in the International Youth Basketball Festival at Gothenburg,Sweden from 4th to 9th May 2016.
