Weekly Photo Challenge: Nighttime

Weekly Photo Challenge: Endurance

Endurance always reminds me of my high school PE teacher talking about running.  However, I believe it means much more than a race.

Adventure can meat a lot of things (including crossing the road if you are a tortoise)

Picking your brains on childhood games

As you probably know I am a scout leader and am trying to find traditional games from all over the world to use with the kids I work with.  This will be part of international awareness, which will run to October when the scouts will have a chance to communicating with other scouts from all over the world.  I would like to pick your brains, in particular if as a kid you lived in a place other than Portugal, so I suspect you may have played different games from the ones I did.

So if you have some minutes to spare,  can you please pick one or two and explain them to me?  It would be great if you could tell me:

- The name of the game (in the original language and a rough English translation),

- The country it originates from

- A brief explanation of the game and any kit required

- Any potential web link for further details / videos / tutorials.

Note the games don’t have to be over complicated or require a lot of stuff.

Thank you!

A few years ago I mentioned freecycle here. It was an amazing discovery and ever since I had been freecycling stuff. I now found “swishing” and yesterday I went to Mrs Bear Swapshop, where I got a new dress and sweater in exchange for a top and a bag.  Loved it and I’m looking forward for the next one!

And so you don’t say it only happens in London, here’s a link to the one in my city in Portugal.  the principle is exactly the same but they seem to be open everyday.

Há uns anos falei aqui no freecycle, um grupo online de oferta de bens.  Desde entao tenho dado e recebido várias coisas e na altura até me registei no grupo de Coimbra que infelizmente nao parecia funcionar.  Entretanto descobri um evento de trocas, onde troquei um top e uma carteira que nao usava por um vestido e uma camisola.  Foi uma descoberta fantástica especialmente porque há mais de um ano tinha lido sobre a existencia de uma loja destas em Coimbra e apesar de ter procurado nao encontrei nenhuma em Londres.  Pois aqui nao é uma loja mas sim um evento mensal, apesar da indeia ser a mesma.  Fiquei fa!
