Sports day!

Спортен ден! The teachers I work with invited me to join them in the sports day between the three elementary schools in Chirpan. It was a blast! It all reminded me of Olympic Day when I was in elementary school. There were chalk drawings

relay races (no pics), football

and a game called “Народна топка” (“people’s ball”)

As far as I can tell, it’s a cross between “dodge ball” and “Sharks and minnows”. The only people that take it more serious than the kids are the male teachers. Sometimes it seemed like over zealous parents at a little league game. Despite the occasional outburst, the kids all had a a great time. Better yet, the kids from my school swept all of the events!
