|My first comp in Brazil, Elder L.! He's an interesting guy. He likes to cook.|
from the mission office. (by bus) But the food here is pinto beans and rice and the food here that's eaten isn't typical Hispanic food. Brazil is a pocket tucked into south America that isn't like the rest of it. It's really strange here. But cool and 3rd world country. My companion will be Brazilian, Elder N.. I think he has about 1 year on his mish. The area that I'm in right now isn't as ghetto as I expected. It's a little nicer than my greenie area in FL. We're going to be whitewashing. (Starting the area w/ no investigators) But that area was really bad. The missionary work in Brazil is way easier, we can do street contacts and get solid investigators from the street contacts.
P-days here stink compared to in the states. All you can do here is e-mail, shop, and dink around in the apt. b/c there's nothing to do. I'm trying to change that though. I'm pretty sure that I ate pig ear the other day. Whenever we're walking down the street Brazilians try to speak English to us and they're impossible to understand b/c it's heavily accented. And the English teachers try and do the same thing and they speak only basic English.
Something that I forgot is that in South FL, iguanas are pests and so there are tons of them nearby water. Lots and lots and lots of them. Alligators too, but in the more populated areas it's iguanas.
Here, we have sidewalks but the road is pretty much a sidewalk too. Things that Haitians would do in my first area make a lot more sense now. (b/c Haiti's third world).
I played piano for sacrament this past week, weird, isn't it?
Also I hit my 8 month mark yesterday! :)
