Portuguese isn´t as bad as I thought. I´m improving so much everyday and can actually understand almost anyone (unless they speak really fast) and I can talk to anyone too. I don't always conjugate the words right, but My companion is teaching me and corrects me whenever we talk. We talk a lot cause we walk everywhere. I can see how people go through a lot of shoes on a mission here. I don't mind the walking either. We get to talk to everyone we pass and when it is cloudy, the weather is really nice here!
I´m slowly getting darker every day too - haha. My companion is really dark so I look really white next to him. I haven't got burned yet (knock on wood). I´ve learned why missionaries don't have cars, too. It's because no one believes in using brakes here... and the motorcyclists don't follow the line on the road. They just weave in between cars. The bikes here look nice though; I love lookin at them, even though I can't ride them.
Well that's all the news I've got from Brasil! It's great here and I´m loving the people. As I learn more of the language, the people seem to change from foreign to normal - it's really interesting.

Before a storm - Belleza!
