This morning I woke up around 8:00 and had the privilege of eating some Turkish yogurt :) Let me just say, the yogurt in the states tops this yogurt here. While I was eating it, I felt like sometimes I was eating cottage cheese. I also had some granola cereal with dried fruit in it, and that was delicious (definitely get more of that at the store)!
We had shoot around at 9:30 this morning. We went over some plays 5 on 0 and then we did some shooting. It was nice to have a decent amount of time to relax before the game which was at 5:00. I finally did some laundry which was amazing!! Unfortunately there are no dryers here, but that is okay. We hang our clothes on drying racks and it works pretty well. The only downside is that the clothes are kind of stiff and wrinkly, but at least they are dry :)
Today began the start of a three day pre-season tournament. I recognized some familiar faces from the WNBA (Tamera Young, Chante Black, Latoya Pringle, and Roneeka Hodges). Today was the first time that our team played with everyone there. The game was pretty close througout. We were down actually by about 15 early on and then came back and went up by three at halftime. We came out on the short edge at the end of the game, and ended up losing by 3 (69-66). It was so FUN getting to play again!! It feels good to run up and down the court and play :)
One interesting thing that I have to make sure I pack in my bag when I go to the gym is toilet paper. None of the bathrooms have toilet paper in them, so I make sure I always have a roll in my bag! Hand sanitizer has also been nice to have as well :)
I ate supper at the cafeteria, and then came home and relaxed. We play tomorrow at 3:00, so we will watch some film before the game from tonight's game.
*I have posted a few pics below of my game jersey. I was able to get #40 still which was great!
