Valle de Angeles

So, it's Saturday and we still had to come in to the Peace Corps training center! LOL.

But, we were only there for 2 hours and it was very fun! We played team work games like fitting us in a small square on the floor...we had one guy hanging from the rafters because there were 15 of us and it was very difficult to get us all in the square. Then, we had to create bridges out of wood boards to get across an "acid river"/the grass. LOL. It was a lot of fun and I met new people, if that's possible!

Then, after a bunch of us went to Valle de Angeles (a nearby city) to eat and watch the soccer game between the U.S. and Ghana...people here LOVE soccer. The restuarnt was very nice. There were 7 of us that went and one girl is fluent in Spanish (Monica) so it was nice to have her around to help us with transportation, etc. But, it was def. very safe. At one point, there were like 15 of us in the internet cafe. LOL. The Hondurans saw many Americans today. But, yeah, no one travels alone, especially after our safety and security session that discussed how Honduras has a very high crime rate. But, anyways, I'm not caring a lot of money with me at one time even though I surprisingly have a lot of money because some was left over from the States.

Anyways, the soccer game...we LOST!! We were all so sad. It was the first time I watched a soccer game, so I had no idea what was really going on, but I knew where our goal was and the fact that we could never seem to get the ball over there!! Es muy triste (sad). I'm learning much Spanish, even though it's difficult. But, others are struggling right along with me.

Tomorrow, I go to church from 8a.m.-11:30a.m. (forever) with my family in Tegucigalpa.

All in all, today was a great day and now I'm back home for the night. I def. had my exercise. AND, I bought some Lay's chips for snacks because our training days during the week are crazy long!!

We have a Church's Chicken in Teguz (Tegucigalpa)...the major city in Honduras. LOL.

This is ofcourse my bathroom.

My's nice, right?!

More Teguz on the way to the training center the first day.


More Teguz...
