Jetlag has definitely set in. However, I was excited to hear some more lectures and to get the workshop started.
After listening to the conclusions from the previous day’s session, we heard some more speakers and broke out into group discussion. The topic trending: women in athletics.
I thought the subject would be very touchy, but I was wrong. In most “developing” countries, female athletes experience the same issues that we face in America.
I was really shocked to see how much more progressive the Middle Eastern countries actually are. After discussing ways in which women could form leadership roles in athletics, we called it a day.
Today’s cultural trip: Taipei 101. This is the second tallest building in the world.
I hate heights.
Clearly, I didn’t think that this trip was in my best interest, but Travis convinced me otherwise. We went up 89 flights in under 45 seconds (my ears have never popped so much) and had the opportunity to look out over the city.
Travis seized the opportunity, while I did not. He got me a pretty good picture of the view though, so I can at least pretend that I was brave enough to look out.
When we returned home, I found myself in bed by 7:00pm. I don’t believe I’ve been in bed my 7:00pm since 3rd grade.
I hope tomorrow promises more great discussions and lectures…and thank goodness, no more record-breaking buildings.
