So hey. It is still hot, butttt it could be hotter as the people up north are learning. I think we hit 39 degrees which is like 103 so it isn´t that bad. We just drink a whole lot of water. But before I forget, CHRISTMAS TIMEEEESZ>.
I don´t know when we´ll call yet, but by next week I will so here is what we´ll do. There are members here that have an international phoneline and it will be just like a local connection (no one pays extra) and I think I will probably call you guys from there. So being that I am hours ahead of you guys (or behind?) you should choose a time that I can call and change it to São Paulo time and let me know when I can call you guys. I will only have 40 minutes, but if everyone is home we can speakerphone it so that I can talk to you all. The international phoneline is pretty sweet. He´s an Italian that specializes in international relations and mixes portuguese and italian and spanish when he talks. My mind just melts sometimes. But yeahhh... it´ll be cool.
So here are some pics of me. The one of me in front of trees is my old area. A stark contrast to the favela. Then a couple of me at the temple and something else I don´t remember. I think my eyes look funny in photos because they aren´t brown. But yeah, I think all of me looks funny because I am not brown.
So I met someone today that has the self title of ``the holder of the defeciency.´´ That name is so funny to me. He seriously calls himself that, kind of like a title. My name is blahblablah - holder of the defeciency. Long story short he´s special and wants to be best friends. woo hoo.
Also, I found out the other day that my comp used a baby bottle until he was 14 years old. That is pretty awesome. He then explained that he is a super momma´s boy and because of that he has no concept of hard work. So I am trying to help him be a man by teaching him manly stuff. We took apart our broken washing machine using only a knife and a standard screwdriver that was too big for the phillips screws the washer uses. Then I fixed it with duct tape and punches (the duct tape is amazing dave). So yeah, we are manly. We wanna grow mustaches, but the rules restrict us for the next year and a half.
but man, a baby bottle...?
so yeah, email me a time to call you and the whole phone number including the international code. Loves you all. byeeeeeeee
