Semana Santa

For the second year in a row I participated in the Semana Santa Volleyball tournament here in Jarabacoa. You may remember that last year, my team got 4th place and the first place team was awarded US$1000. This year however, the sponsors dropped out so it was a lot more low key and there wasn't as much prize money. My team, Cecilia, Jessica and I, had been preparing and training for the tournament for months and we even had team shirts made! So we were very disappointed when we found out that since there was not as much prize money, the competition would not be as tough. But, nonetheless, the tournament was great and we won first place! We were very happy to be presented with RD$12000 (US$300) as our prize. :-)
