Yesterday we wrestled hard and today was a bit easier - we lifted weights in the morning and rested in the afternoon.

Tonight the German team had a bbq. It was really good. There were many different kinds of meat and the German beer wasn’t bad either. It has been months since I had a drink so the beer I had on an empty stomach before dinner kicked in nicely. Murray gets here tomorrow. My body can’t wait. I haven’t slept much in the last 10 days because it has been so hot at night. Today it has been cooler so I hope I get a good sleep. I have spent a number of hours over the last few days acting as travel agent again. I need to organize travel to Dortmund next week, then to Prague a few days later. I also need to sort out the camp in Colorado springs in July. Once this is all done my travel agency career will be over – none too soon. the food at this training center has been great. At lunch today I had antelope stew and asparagus soup followed by rice pudding. I took quite a bit of baggage with me to Europe. A lot of it is food or supplements that I didn’t want to buy in Europe for fear of a positive drug test. I didn’t spend that much time figuring out exactly how much to bring – I decided to err on the side of too much. well – I did a good job. I have a big container of protein powder that I won’t even open on this trip along with a few other containers of other stuff. basically, I have carried around an entire bag full of stuff that I didn’t need. this makes inter European travel much more fun.
