Bless Team:English/Dutch Cultural Evening

The Bless team arrived on Saturday to spend the week with us here in Banja Luka. They are a group of 9 from Holland and England, led by Iris and Justin who were here two years ago. It is great having them back again - it really seems like yesterday that they were around! This morning we tried to go to the orphanage, but through some miscommunication (my bad for not confirming, although I did try!), they were not able to have us and so we had to change plans - it is a good thing that we are pretty flexible!!

Tonight we had a "Cultural night": A mixture of pub quiz, (which my team lost by 1/2 a point - it was rigged!) games and good food, made for a great evening:
This is a very interesting game where you have to pick a slowly diminishing box up with your mouth with only your feet on the ground - I had never seen this one before!

Aleksandar showing how it's done

And Zoe getting just the lid!

Then it was time for "Chubby Bunny"!! I haven't played this since high school... putting marshmallows in your mouth and seeing if you can put the most... I got up to 7!
Stuff it in there

Below is all of us who were trying. Milan (left) won by putting in 11!
I didn't get any pictures of the food which came afterwards - including English scones, fairy cakes and muffins, Dutch stroopwafels and chicken with satay  (peanut) sauce! The people enjoyed themselves so much we will be doing it again tomorrow night!!

It was very fun. I am glad that we are all a little bit flexible, and game with box, it was very interesting. I know that we will enjoy all together these few days and the team is really great.
Big kiss from Tanja :)
