It’s Team Canada reporting live from Chennai, India! We arrived here late Wednesday night to busy streets, crazy driving, and extreme heat. So far we’ve explored temples, rode elephants, and saw snakes and crocodiles in captivity. It’s a complete culture shock and we actually decided to buy sarees the first day in an attempt to “blend” in. People still stare and chuckle, but we think we look good. Even though our days have been very busy with tourist activities, we still have been training hard every day on court. The courts here are very different from the courts we all are used to back home. The first couple of days of training there was no air conditioning and we were all dripping with sweat during the warm up! But fear not fans, us Canadian girls are fit! Hope all is well back in Canada and you are enjoying Canadian summer weather, which we have been told is equivalent to Indian winter!
