Volleyball... I think....

OK, so I played volleyball year round in high school, so when I see a volleyball game going, I get excited and I have to check it out... So, on our last day in B'lore, I was walking from the apartment I was staying in, and I saw a bunch of girls playing volleyball... I got closer thinking I was going to watch a serious match, but then noticed something different about this game... Nobody was hitting the ball... instead, they were throwing and catching it!!! In the picture below, you can see, one of the girls throwing... I mean, serving the ball :)

It was awesome! They were "throw-spiking" the ball over the net! Now, the trick was, you could only hold the ball for a split-second... then you threw it over... there wasn't much of the good old "pass, set, hit" going on, but the game was quite exciting! You never know what you're going to see here in South Asia :)

Your pictures bring back so many memories. From my desk I could look out my window and watch the girls playing vothrowball! I spent some time the other night with Robert and Mindy and they told me you still have glitter on your lips! I was wondering ! I hope you have a Merry Christmas!
