It has been a hot morning today. Everyone woke up around 7 AM and you could already feel the warm breeze on your face. While some tried to have breakfast as fast as possible, others were still laying on their beds figuring out what time it was. The first day left us very tired but it is impossible not wanting to wake up for the next adventure.

Here is the top 4 of the day:

Mark Scott – 32:05,2
