saturday playing go

saturday playing go

When last week i passed saturday working on the camper and sunday hacking the computer, i felt i wasn't getting enough rest. It became even more evident when on monday evening i was hit by a big stress: my god, another week is starting and i haven't had any proper rest. So when friday came i decided that something had to change. Thanks to internet i found a list of places in italy where go was being played. There were a few places around here, in particular one in noale, where i often go to find some key ingredients for my diet. I got in touch with Marco and went. We were hosted by the local christian community, among with kids of all ages. There was a loud creative noise going on all the time, and i were told that we weren't allowed any swearing.
'Even if i loose?
Even then.
I'll try not to loose.'
And honestly enough the kids did not seem to need any further knowledge on swearing. They all mastered the topic.
We were only 3, but enough to have fun playing. The game in the picture was between me and Marco. He being 6th kyu, me around 12th with 6 stones of handicap. I won by a few points, but he was playing 2 games at the same time. Then we all went out for a pizza and i was taught all the local go mythical stories. We had great fun.
