We begin to play cards with them (For my dad: I taught them Black Jack, we played Vegas style and even bet with fake money, you would've loved it!)
Me and Bren being registered to the World Cup
Yeah for the U.S.A. Representatives!
The wonderful coach all dressed up
To all of those reading this and hoping we would win... We didn't. We lost the first round; I lost to an Argentine and Bren lost to a Brazilian. Too much fun and we met a great family who treated us to lunch at the Sheraton! The family travels, while the dad opens up Sheratons. And get this the kids speak English, Spanish and Chinese. All in all, a great stop and now when Bren and I have free time we play marbles (were actually kind of obsessed and really competitive.) Signing off and as my Aunt Wendy said "Taking the time to smell the roses or "play marbles" that's what life is all about!"
This was the dog at the hostel we stayed at, and he couldn't see, and his tongue never moved from that position
Category D (Also mine and Bren's Category)
Category E (Yep, even a 40 and above for Marbles!)
Me being a coach
Bren and his opponent
Bren playing some serious Marbles
Me and my opponent
Jeez, look at that face...! And I still lost
He's going on to the next day!! Category E
Instead of chalk, some of the kids used the dirt, and in this part of town, it's red
Just some of the winner's the first day
Part of the family we met
The winner gets a marble made of solid gold...He was really nervous, in category A, and one of the kids we came with.....He didn't win the gold marble, but he got a solid silver one!
