This is home.

This is where I am living in Brasil


I was in a nearby city for lunch, and this bush was one of the interesting things that I saw to take a picture of.
So after much debate (and questioning from my mother) I decided that I should maybe actually start this blog. I have now been in Brasil for two wonderful months, and have enjoyed every minute of it. I've tried and done many things that are not available back home, and it's been such an eye opening experience. Thus far I have not traveled far away from Jales, but that will change.
Thus far in my trip I've gone to a fifteenth birthday party, which here is a very big deal, and this was extremely extravagant. I've tried Churrasco, Brazilian BBQ, multiple times. I've gotten addicted to Ice Cream, but who wouldn't with flavors like kinder egg, and Ferror Roche? Been to a Hawaiian Ball, where I apparently got my photo in the local newspaper, which I have yet to see... And many more things. This is just a shortened version of my last two months.
I've met many other exchange students now, all of the students in my Rotary district, and one not in my district. And enjoyed being around them.
I can now carry on a basic (VERY BASIC) conversation in Portuguese, and am learning more everyday, I

don't even take my dictionary into the city with me all the time any more!
But that's all for now, as I'm meant to be packing my bags to go to my familys farm. More to follow another day.
Tchau pessoas....

At another restraunt in a nearby city there were wooden birds in the trees. I just loved them.

Best Pizza EVER. Yes that is chocolate.

Guten Tag!
I apologize if my blog was used in convincing you to get one in a "Well, Kyle has one" way. Sounds like you're like your having a good time and not spending too much time in the classroom. Have a good one Jess!

Darn you Kyle!!
Ahhh.... I'll let you take all the blame Kyle. I'm thinking that it actually didn't have anything to do with my starting the blog though :P

Fresh cashews are the best! In Mozambique I even made them with my family, they brought them home just like that and then we lit them on fire till they like burst into flames, and then threw some sand on them to cool em down and after we cracked em open one by one with a stick! You should try much more enjoyable if you make em yourself, or you could buy em off the kids on the beach!

I can't lie to you Brendan, I didn't actually eat those cashews... I was just posing for a picture :P But that sounds interesting.. unfortunately none of the property that my family owns that I've seen did I notice cashew trees... :( I'll have to stick to my coconut water and mangos...
