Today was a pretty boring day at school. We had a test in PE (Algebra), which I always like because I actually understand algebra. After school we had to stay until 4:30 for sports. I had been in volleyball, but I really kind of hate volleyball, so today I changed sports to track. Instead of just standing around like we do in volley, we actually ran and did exercises and I feel like I got something out of the hour and half. It was a lot better and I actually like sports now. After school, I came home and put on nicer clothes and redid my makeup because Sally had invited me to some fancy concert thing with her dad. I ate dinner (completos which are like hot dogs but with tomato and avocado instead of ketchup and mustard), and then waited for my dad to come home so he could drive me over to Sally’s house. When I got there, I sat down with Sally’s family so they could eat dinner while I drank some tea. Then Sally changed her clothes and we left. Her dad explained what we were doing on the way there because neither of us understood the first time. We were going to the new theater in Rancagua to see the national police concert band perform. Sally’s dad got tickets because he is a retired police chief. When we got there, it was obvious that this was a dignified event, with press, and lots of uniformed police officers, and important people. Sally’s dad introduced us to a few people he knew, and it was really interesting to meet and get a chance to talk to such important people. Then we sat down (in the front row) for the concert. It was really amazing. The performers were all in full uniform, and they are all the best players in Chile, so obviously the music was fantastic. It touched a special chord in my heart because seeing an orchestra playing made me miss playing my flute in the band. It also really made me appreciate how talented these people were. After the concert, the mayor of Rancagua, and the current Rancagua chief of police came up and gave speeches.
