Rio Branco - Week 3

This is the EGGNOG that I made, right after I got your recipe last week, haha :) It turned out pretty good, just a little thin or something. Which I don't know why. One thing, here they don't have quite the same things as over there, so I had to buy Creme de Leite, with I think 30% fat instead of the recommended 31%, and also the milk I used was this 3.2% that they sell here for kids to grow, hahaha :) So I'm blaming it on substandard ingredients. But it was really good, I made the full recipe (because I'm not a chicken that makes half-recipes of stuff) and I probably drank...a lot of it in two days, hahaha :) Didn't get sick though! I didn't end up sharing that much. It was 20 reais to get all the stuff for it though, which is pretty expensive. Anyways, that was a lot of typing about eggnog. 

Me and Elder Lemes in...McDonald's

I will hit 6 MONTHS on the mission this Wednesday, so I decided that we were going to go to McDonald's to celebrate. So I had a Quarter Pounder, large meal, with a frozen strawberry lemonade! I was so happy. It was a little smaller than in the States, but it was still nice. And I also got an Oreo McFlurry :) It was a pretty good P-day. Also kinda a funny story with that...we were in our district meeting last Tuesday, and all of a sudden Elder Lemes announced that we were going to go to McDonald's to celebrate 6 months, and that if the other (4) elders in our district wanted to come, they were invited. I thought, "Wow! Didn't know it was your celebration, or that I allowed you to announce it to everyone!" But only two of the elders came. Still would've been better to just have us two, though. And even better if it was just me :) Me and my McDonald's. So yeah, that's that. I was super happy about the lemonade, they took it away when I was in Florida. 

Also this P-day, I shrank my patriarchal blessing down to a wallet size and laminated it (plastifiquei, sounds a lot cooler in Portuguese), so now I can carry it around with me. I'm pretty impressed that I can read it, it's really really small :) 

And I also bought a new watch, which I kinda feel like I betrayed my other watch (which I still really like and will keep), but I wasn't sure if the old one was water-resistant or anything. I don't know, I just kinda feel bad for buying a new watch so soon. But I got a slick one, with analog and digital, and it's all metal, how I like.

And I got my hair cut by a gangster. So yeah, that was our P-Day. Pretty nice. 

Our weather was super hot this past week, except for today and one other day, that it was cool and rainy. Pretty awesome wind, knocking stuff down and such too. But yeah, it's been hot. Anyways, I think that's it for me.

Until next week!
