Olympic Gold!

Onboard the Africa Mercy, we are always looking for free ways to entertain ourselves when we aren't working. Two weeks ago, we held our own version of the Olympics. Meet my team, the Average Joe's:

No, we don't normally dress or pose like this. :)

A few of our competitors:

the Tooth Fairies (aka dental team)...

the Lost Boys...second star to the right and straight on 'til morning!

the Pirates Who Don't Do Anything (remember Veggie Tales?)...

the Warriors...

Team TERSH...

the Super Squirrels...

And many more...Let the games begin!

Here I am being lifted through the "ring of fire."
