Day 3 in Jerusalem

  • 12/06/2019

At 5:30 the sun peaks over the horizon and the first sheds of light slip into our rooms along with the gracious chirps of the Israelian fauna we are getting to know so well.

Half an hour later, we see the first signs of movement, as Don Jaun Navalpotro, Don Paybol, and Don Antonio Orol lead us to the Holy Sepulchre to start off the first prayers of the day, with the EVAU grades being amongst the main concerns, along with not getting sunburned, and of course, wishing the best for our families.

The sun keeps on making its way across the Israelian skies and we make sure to keep up with it by putting on our working golves, rolling back our sleeves, and diving straight in to our daily  routine, heading out to win the second leg of this nerve-racking clash. It is vital to bring our A Game out into the field today to make up for the mistakes made by the Jimenez Andrade cousins, more focused on their pointless discussions and over-ambitious chronicles.

With the sun nearing it’s high point and temperature reaching scorching levels, many take their shirts off out in the garden to take advantage of the sunlight and get tan (after having applied sunscreen first, don’t worry mothers) and Cancio thinks about maybe doing some work.

Those at Notre Dame de Douleurs entertain the elderly with their good intended but, sadly, not very successful remake of “Badabadum badum badero”. It is a relief for most of us that the wonderful staff of the residence speak french and some english and, although Luis Soldevilla still had a very difficult time communicating with them, everyone appreciated his constant smile.

In the Franciscan custody, Alberto Baltar and company are in charge of sanding down the walls and repainting them white with the help of Miguel Escrig and Saliva.

Lucas Sánchez, who was working in the Salesians, had a lot of fun with the Arabs… We are all embracing the culture very well.

Meanwhile in Saxum, Gonzalo Merino led the charge against the debris, while listening to all his favorite Disney songs in Arab.

We would also like to mention the crew working with the nuns of San Brigida who seemed to be annoyed with the lack of their presence in the first chronicle.

The sun, tired after a labourous day of hard work, gently sets on the Jerusalem skyline bathing the patio of the Salesians with a soft, warm orange glow where Nano is finishing up a delicious dinner. The boys are playing mus and showering, exhausted yet happy to be here putting an end to our Retamar school life. See you tomorrow.
