Today ended the Institute’s volleyball tournament that started just a couple weeks after I arrived. Our team Siempre Listo (“Always ready”) fared moderately well. We chalked up a few victories against the professor’s team, although that unfortunately resulted in extra homework the next day. In the end, I think we came in second place, though it’s tough to tell because I didn’t understand the format of the tournament. Now that volleyball is done, we’ll have to move on to basketball and fulbito (a downsized version of soccer with a smaller, hard ball).
