Week 40

It was a crazy week here.  And this weekend I got super sick.  But i´m finally feeling a better.  Í think that i´m over the hump and will be ready to go this week. 
My companion is way cool.  We get a long really well.  Also i´m learning the language a lot faster with him.  That is a huge plus.  Its funny how that is but its like that in Brazil as well.  Except its more like all of Brazil hates Bahia....oh well i´m here.  My new area is so much better.  Its a lot cleaner and has blocks.  Also there are trees and vegetation here.  I missed seeing vegetation in Salvador.  It was horrible all thats there is concrete.  Also the people are alot nicer here and more civilized.  It is cold here at night and sometimes in the day.  I do like that.  I think its because of the elevation and we are like 1 hour from the ocean.  There is a lot less humidity as well.  It is more like the weather in Moscow.  It´s just better here.   I took a bus here.  I left at night and got here in the morning on Wednesday 2 weeks ago.  The ride was about 12 hours, but I slept most of the way so it wasn´t too bad. The only thing that could be better is the LZ here, they are really uptight.  One of the LZ was companions with my trainer.  He says that I talk exactly like him in English and in Portuguese.  Haha its probably true we had a lot in common so i wouldn´t be surprised if we do.  But the LZ here are like our DL in Salvador.  No matter what we do its not good enough.  Hopefully that will change or we will just continue to do what we´re doing and laugh about it. 

Well it sounds like things are continuing to go well there.  I´m glad to hear that.
