In January, I spent 11 nights in beautiful Brazil...
I can honestly say that I had the time of my life. I learned to understand Portuguese... I drank juice from sugarcanes and coconuts… we found a starfish in the ocean… we saw a crab that was ready to fight… we were able to exercise on the beach, for free, with the red equipment seen in the photos… we saw guys that were able to spray-paint and finger-paint masterpieces in less than 5 minutes! I enjoyed the numerous vendors on the beach selling food, jewelry, clothes and blankets. I went kayaking and my brothers kept falling out of their kayaks... it was very funny. I was a pro and I never fell out! On the beach, the guys play soccer and use 2 coconuts as boundaries for a goal box. I thank my host family for taking me with them.. They make sure that I had an enjoyable experience. The apartment we stayed at was very comfortable and classy. How could I forget to mention… it took us 3 days to get to Brasil and 2 days back… that was quite a bit of time with 6 people all jammed in one vehicle but I made memories that I will never forget!

As of the beginning of February, I am living in a different family. They have 3 daughters but they are all studying at the university so they don’t live at home. I love my new house and family… I am adjusting quite well. Unfortunately, they are leaving for a vacation without daughters… so at the beginning of March, I have to switch families… but I do believe when they come home from vacation, I am returning to their house.

This weekend, I have a swim meet in another province… I am looking forward to it because I will have some quality bonding time with my teammates. School is going to be starting up again in a few weeks. Summer vacation has gone by too fast.

Email me if you would like to know it…
