PREPARING FOR CAMP
We are at camp in the mountains near Olympos (where the first olympic torch was lit!). For the past couple of days, we have been prepping for camp, which starts on Saturday. I am rooming with Katie and Michelle and we are counseling high schoolers. Our pansiyons (rooms) are very nice and include air conditioning... which I would venture to say is a necessity in this climate! Yesterday was 108 degrees F; the hottest day of the year so far.
We spent the evening with the high school boy counselors preparing bonding games for the high schoolers. We are going to play the human knot and ninja on our first day with them. I'm getting excited to teach drama! I'll have most of the day tomorrow to prepare for that elective.
The Mediteranean is amazing! The water is warm but not hot and very salty so floating is way easy. Another necessity for surviving this heat is jumping in the ocean at LEAST once a day!
Well that's all for now; got to let someone else use the precious computer. Gule gule (see ya later)!
