We know that you want to know how the soccer games went. We lost. But we knew that was likely to happen. We see our performance as success, because we were not totally humiliated. The women lost 1-0 and the men lost 3-1. Though you are excited to see that our men’s team at least scored, we must admit that it was our Brazilian compatriots who combined to score our goal, with a MAJOR assist from Draga/Jake. We’ll get back to this subject further down the page.
Julia in the painting zone incapable of smiling when focused. One of our jobs today was to paint the bathrooms a tangerine orange.
Nate barely flexing a muscle to lift a 110 pounds of cement. We needed the cement to finish building a wall of the new part of the pousada (guest house).
Annie and Zummo sifting sand to make the cement to finish the wall. We need 6 buckets of sand and 1 bag of cement to make the cement mixture.
Os capitães (the captains), Matt and Claudia, with their captain bands giving us a pregame pep talk. Okay, ladies now let’s get in formation.
We were all very excited to play our first soccer game against Anã. The women ended up losing 1-0 and the men 3-1. All in all we are very excited for our rematch Friday!
