One week has passed and the Deepstars have adapted to the climate, the time, the house, the court and each other.
Today we visited the school for half a day. The principal gave us a tour and everywhere we walked eyes were glancing down at us. A few people understood and could speak English and others just said hello and moved on but all were surprised when they found out that we are from Australia.
We got sorted into classes according to our ages, met new people, Vanessa and Daph also participated in a dance that the school was practicing for their festival at the end of this week. We all attended our set classes to do some school work but it was a bit hard to concentrate when you are in a class full of people who don’t understand you, even the teacher.
We got back, had lunch and headed straight back to the court for a extensive workout followed by 30 minutes of short sharp sprints. Tomorrow is match play day number 2 and we are all in for two 3 set matches starting at 8am and finishing at 6pm.
Goodbye for now, love Steph...
ps: Cesar also bought a big cake tonight for Vanessa and I to celebrate our birthdays! We will post some photos tomorrow
