|We were very excited to be going back to camp today. The current group arrived on Sunday so unfortunately we only get to spend 48 hours with them before they leave on Saturday.
As soon as we returned to camp Ercan and I prepped the scuba equipment and jumped in the water with them for a scuba experience.
We bonded very quickly with the group, and I had the opportunity to swim some long distances in the sea with a couple of them. They were very strong and athletic, the basic Turkish I have learned is now coming in handy for working with the groups. What a fun athletic and competitive group Muffy set up a mini Olympics friday afternoon complete with running, swimming, basketball, and navigation segments. It was very fun and Muffy awarded all of the athletes with 2002 Paralympic Pins that we brought from home.
