New restaurant I found that’s not too shabby. Read an article that 4 badminton teams were disqualified for throwing games. I know it’s the Olympics, but who takes the sport that seriously? Also didn’t know that ‘handball’ was an Olympic sport until I realized that the entire Swedish handball team was good looking. Speaking of which, we get like 3 channels of the Olympics, but each channel is designated for a different country here in South America. Even the commercials will say, “Designed for Colombia”, and the Colombian accent isn’t too much of a challenge. On the other hand, the Argentinian announcers are impossible to understand. Living in Peru, I suppose I’m biased.
