yesterday I participated in the Italian Challange. My school organized a small sports tournament with other schools studying abroad as well as Italian students. They had 3 sports: Tennis, Volleyball and Soccer. I signed up for soccer. The plan was to integrate all the students into teams so we could all meet knew people. But I feel (with soccer especially) everybody got divided into either all boy or girl teams. And all the schools stayed together in teams. So in a way it was totally backwards from the original intention.
Plus the girls only got to play one game verses the boy's tournament. But it was ok- I had a pretty good time and I am glad I did it, I hadn't played soccer in 5 years!!! I still got a little talent- I scored a goal in our shoot out at the end!
