Katie's China adventure

Today

Monday, August 3, 2009

Today was so long but so worth it. We walked through the forbidden city, the imperial palace and tiananmen square but by far the hardest thing today was tai chi- can you bellieve it? And ping pong... I was dreading me taking out an eye. But it was AMAZING! These kids that were like seven and twleve could woop us all at the begining. And they were sooo intense but they were the cutest things. Also I can pretty much spike like no other now. Those coaches had magic fingers, they worked miracles. - so dad watch out. If our first day was this perfect I can't imagine what's in store for the rest of this trip, PING PONG BABY!

Isn't it amazing how skilled a person can become at something when he has the right teacher. I wonder how many hours a day those students practice ping pong. I use to love playing ping pong, but I must say I probably would have been embarrased by my many losses. You guys probably gave the kids something to talk about over dinner with their parent; they probably had a good laugh at your expense. Karen Wells DSA South Africa

Perfection is something you will learn Discovery delivers daily. Enjoy your trip.
