The Nakayot United Warriors played their debut soccer (called futbol here) game yesterday against Lorangachora. United Warriors is a great name for them as these young men would be warriors if they were not living in the peace village. And they are united as they are from two tribes that 5 years ago would have been killing each other. Pretty cool.  Our guys were a little lacking in the skills department but they made up for it in heart.
It's uniforms vs. none. The home team is wearing any jersey in what ever color they could get. Our team is just glad they have shorts and shirts. That is the ref in white and khaki. 

Everyone in bare feet. 

I love this. We needed to pause midway into the first half  to re inflate the ball. At least the guys from each team are working together!!
