Day 3: from Porto to Barcelos

Hey everyone!

This morning we woke up and  got out of bed to get breakfast– another day of yummy chocolate croissants. Then, a few of us ventured out to a local fruit market to pick up some  snacks– white peaches being a favorite. Today was our last day in Porto so we had all of our stuff packed up and we hopped on the bus and headed off to Barcelos, the site of our festival. We wrote some postcards and anxiously looked out the window at the amazing surroundings. We are staying at a school in two different rooms– which we named Room Codfish and Room Rooster. We had our fist rehearsal later in the day for  our show tomorrow and we all could not be more excited. We had dinner with all the other countries and we had the opportunity to play several team bonding games and dance and sing-alongs. Last minute we were invited to a party and got to meet a few of the performers!
