Today, my host family and I went shopping in Hamm. We bought gifts and souvenirs, had delicious seafood for lunch, looked at all of the Christmas displays, and ate ice cream for dessert. Lana and I took some pictures with Santa's reindeer!
Later this evening, we went to Lana's handball match. Handball is a popular European game, but it is not so well-known in the United States. These girls are tough, and they sure play a rough sport!! I was impressed, stressed, and thoroughly entertained. Congratulations are in order for Lana and her club team, too- THEY WON! It should be easy to spot Lana in the following pictures because she is the goalie wearing bright green and defending her goal like a champ. ;)
