The News About Futbol
Although some of us have some pretty big bug bites and sunburns, we are really enjoying our time here so far. I am pretty sure that we are eating way better and more nutritiously here than at home!
We started off the day by playing soccer with a Guatemalan team. We lost 9-0! But it was a really good time. Afterwards, the girls did a good job in basketball and defeated the clinic team.
In the afternoon we went up to a mountain village and had mass. It was really special. The people were so extremely welcoming and friendly. After mass, the kindly prepared a table for us with bread and Coke.
On the way to the mountain village, we rode in the back of two pickups standing up and holding on for dear life. The drivers are kind of crazy down here and the roads are bumpy! So it was a really fun time and it was a great bonding experience. It was especially awesome to wave at all the people when going through the towns. The people here are so friendly! Their smiles are so beautiful and get me every time, especially the little boys and girls. There is definitely something special about them! Although they are very shy, they are even more curious and stare at us a lot and giggle at us. We enjoy it quite a bit.
I have also really enjoyed improving my Spanish speaking skills. The people here are really patient with us and try to help us understand things. We are really appreciative of their patience and kindness.
Thank you everyone for following us! We miss you all back home!
