Today is Wednesday. It’s been a really slow, low-key week for me. Not much again today — I do have my tutoring session at 3pm and I need to get a little bit of last minute studying in before she comes. Tomorrow I’m going out to lunch and to the movies with Ana. I’m pretty excited about that.
Búzios — The beaches were beautiful and the town had lots of charm. I really enjoyed the time there. I even kayaked! That was interesting…the last time I kayaked was about 11 or 12 years ago at an Indian Princess campout. I refused to go in a double kayak with my dad, but instead said that I could handle my own just fine, thank you. Haha, I had never been in one before, I have no idea what I was thinking. Well, I was out there in the middle of the pond with no clue as to how to steer or even move that darn thing and then it started to storm. I got freaked out and was screaming for help. Yeah that was my last experience. Well I got in the kayak with Wander and Lucas and the man handed me a paddle thing. OH dear, I thought to myself, what in the world am I supposed to do with this? It was an utter disaster at first, I was rowing one way and Wander the other. But we finally got the hang of it and had a lot of fun. Oh, there was this adorable little boy at the hotel. He was 1 year old and his name is Pedro Enrique. Oh my gosh, he was soooooo cute! I just wanted to take him home with me! I got to play with him a lot — his parents were really nice and they let me have him one evening!
Books — I am running out of books! I have lots of time to read these days and I definitely didn’t bring enough books with me. I am on my second to last book. I’ve been trying to read slowly, but it isn’t working. Oh well. I guess I could buy some books and Portuguese. Yeah then I would be forced to read very slowly.
