Some things from this past weekend, in order of importance:
Our cultural excursion for this weekend was a pirate ship dancing boat tour of nearby ancient forts. I won a Caipirinha (Brazil’s national cocktail but the one I won was non-alcoholic) for being the best dancer on the boat, to hit songs such as “I Got a Feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas and “I’m Blue” by Eiffel 65. My professor told me that she was surprised I could dance like that, “like that” being essentially twerking from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
proof that i have friends/Brazil leaves me glowing even WITHOUT Kiehl´s
On one of the island visits I saw a huge family of CAPYBARAS, the world´s LARGEST RODENT.
On that Friday, I got invited to a Brazilian girl´s 19th birthday party. I unfortunately don´t think I´ll attend.
I bought a copy of Twilight (Crepusculo) in Portuguese. Bella Swan is the worst in all languages.
Went for a run on Sunday, accidentally got lost in a Bolsonaro (Brazil´s Trump) celebration march. Silently protested by listening to Britney Spears the entire run.
