A little note from today

So today is Friday, and neither Zach nor I have classes on Fridays. So that's really nice. Today we went out to lunch with our new German friend Antonia. After a lunch of grilled chicken, french fries, an orange, juice and some cream of asparagus soup, Antonia asked us if we wanted to go to an official Universidad de ConcepciĆ³n basketball game. So we decided that it would be a good thing to do, show some school spirit and whatnot. Anyways, after the end of the first game, womens basketball, I saw something that was so funny, I felt it was blog worthy.
And before I tell you what it was, I need to back up a bit. The customary greeting here when two girls meet, or when a girl and guy meet is for each person to give one kiss on the right cheek.
So at the end of this basketball game, I was pleasantly surprised, and laughed out loud when I saw that instead of the girls from both teams shaking hands or doing that slap-hands-while-walking by each other thing we do in the states, they all gave each other a kiss on the right cheek.
Now that's sportsmanship!
