So the Olympics has finally started...and I don't mean the real ones I mean Camp Echo's! Last night we had a fake Olympics breakout as they call it. We were watching the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics on the big screen on the hill when loads of counselors ran down with signs and the torch shouting 'Olympics is here!!' but then they revealed a sign that said 2000 instead of 2008 and the countries written on the banner were from that year.
Each year they choose 2 random countries, one to represent the blue team and one for the white. This year the white team is Hungary and the blue team is Panama, I'm on the Panama team. Today they broke it in a really cruel way though! We've been rehearsing a dance for a disney show called Camp Rock and the kids were told that Disney were coming to film us doing the dance for the show so everyone was so excited. The camp brought in lifts and a stage and everything to make it realistic but we all guessed that it was fake to break the Olympics. The kids were so disappointed though they spent ages learning it and thought the band they love called The Jonas Brothers were coming to camp. The people with the signs even drove up in a limo! Some kids started crying I really did think it was a bit mean, if they told me Brad Paisley was coming and then said only joking I'd be a bit annoyed! haha
I'm rambling now but everyone is so excited now, they take this so serious and it's meant to be really competitive! It goes on for 5 days and then on friday and saturday we pack to leave which is going to be so sad! I'm really going to miss all the friends I've made here, it's weird how close you become because you are literally always with them, it's like living in a bubble.
Anyway the last fews day has just been build up to Olympics and learning the dance so I don't have much else to say. I'll let you all know how it's going through the week though.
Go Team Panama!
