(apparently it’s legal to drive 4-wheelers in the city with a sport coat and a tie. this isn’t the only time i’ve seen it done.)

we’ve been here for one month now. the first 2 weeks seemed like 2 months and the second 2 weeks flew by in 2 days. ┬áthis is my last week of portuguese classes. i’ve been going mon-fri from 10-12 for the last 3 weeks, and while i still can’t really speak portuguese, i can read it much better, have a better vocabulary, and can string together a simple sentence. the only problem with being able to fumble through a sentence is that the answer will be in portuguese, and if it’s not yes, no, or pointing in a direction, i often have trouble understanding.

this week we move into a new apartment. it’s 3 blocks up on the same street, and we will have the option to rent it for the whole year if we like it. for the move we are planning on having a taxi drive us 3 blocks up the street with all of our stuff. depending on what kind of car the taxi driver has, i think we can make it in 2 or 3 trips. the only catch is that the street is narrow and one way. so while we are loading/unloading all of the cars will have to wait behind us.

    last night i saw another guy on a 4-wheeler. it was more tricked out though, and he peeled out and then rode a wheely down the street. it was really weird. maybe i should get a 4 wheeler. they are easy to park.
