So, I swear we've been in the air for, like, 10 days. Just kidding. Currently in the Sao Paolo airport waiting for connection to Asuncion. Delayed by a hour and a half, or something like that.
Actually, the TAM flight was nice. Huge airplane, comfy blankets, warm towels, decent food. It's so crazy to feel like such a foreigner! Most people speak english, but first everybody speaks to you in portuguese, which is such an amazing, swooshy language. Wild. And it's kinda like: ..."uh....sorry...what? I don't understand. Do you speak english?" which, in portuguese is "o que, nao percebo; fala ingles?", pronounced like: "oo kay? nowng pirsayboo; fala inglaysha?" Yeah. Try that!

ANYHOO! No, I promise I wont be constantly blogging about my boring layovers!!! Here's something, though;
there's rain in Brazil and we had a little turbulence coming in. Not far from the airport, there's suddenly this flash outside the left side of the wing and this bang! Did we get struck by lightening? Did we suck some super-highflying water fowl into an engine? Of course I'm not sure, because "nao percebo", but whatever it was provided some excitement, and everyone clapped once the plane landed on the runway.

GTs! No worries, Ma!
