My cousins live here in Ajijic in a neighbourhood community called El Parque.

Every year they hold a water volleyball tournament.

This year they were short a coupla players, so Phillip and I were called up to play. We had a sleepover at Al and Claudine’s place so we qualified to play and learned that we would be the amongst youngest players in the tournament.

My team (Team Green), sadly, came last, but we DID have a blast. I was definitely the youngest team member and my friend, Jorge (pictured on left) played well better than me and won tournament most improved player. He was awesome.

Phillip’s team (Team Orange) won the very tightly contested final match to take home the trophy. I will post a pic of his name on the trophy when it’s done. To say he was chuffed is an understatement.

What a great day.
