          All afternoon classes are meeting in the cafeteria for the Spain v. Netherlands game. The younger grades were supposed to be in the classroom for lessons but the students convinced their teachers to let them go. Longwood students learned an interesting lesson today...classrooms get ...

          ... we walked 3 hours, picked up lots of information from our guide and managed to see 2 new birds on our own.

          On the way up the hill Miguel, the guide, picked up two stones and started hitting them together twice to make a clicking noise, waited a few seconds and repeated the 'clicks'.
