South America | Brazil | Rio de Janeiro – ‘No Beti! Not on the Live Journal!’
Well the good news is, Jimmie bought me jelly beans.
The bad news is, Jimmie e Louisa fizeram o tango horizontal. Eu disse para eles lhes, ‘GUYS! Nós estamos no Brasil. Nós n?o tango aqui, nós SAMBA!’ Mas me escutaram? N?O! Estavam brincando de ESCONDER A SALSICHA NO TÚNEL.
So much! It´s really nice and easy here. We are about to go to Lapa and samba. What have I done in the past several days? In no particular order:
Took Spanish dance class with my alunas at Ballet Santa Teresa
Watched my alunas´ capoeira roda at BST – it was so sweet. They sing so loud, without reservation. It was beautiful.
Taught many an English class. We have progressed to semi-conversations.
Took another modern class at the DC dance studio. Not as fun as the last one, but we did play frisbee in class. 🙂
… I am making plans to go down south in a week or so. I will be teaching English at a school in a small city called Santa Cruz do Sul. It sounds lovely. Very close to the borders of Uruguay and Argentina. I can´t wait to see Buenos Aires!
There´s so much here. I feel very relaxed and yet completely excited at the same time.
Time works differently here. There just seems to be more of it.
Enough floufy stuff. More actual details soon.
