Day 6 here at the World Scout Jamboree. Things are going well so far.
Today's event was People. It was all about exploring how yourself and others feel. We played a game called Rafa Rafa where we got to experience how cultures feel when others intrude and don't know their customs. Trying to figure out what is insulting to others can be quite frustrating and difficult.
As past entries may hint to, the biggest part of the Jamboree is meeting new people. We have become good friends with the Irish group we met at Camp in Camp, and the constant badge trading has lead to many new frienships. We have even had lots of opportunities to use our french, when speaking with people from Belgium and France!
It has been amazing here, and tonight we have Dream, which is supposed to be the best activity. We'll just have to wait and see...
