Itanhaém - Week 2

Man, my hands are so cold when I'm writing this, it's hard to type. It's been cold enough to wear a sweater AND a suit or my big jacket. It's been 15-16 degrees here [60 degrees farenheit], which probably sounds lame to you guys, but hey, it's cold to us Brazilians! I haven't been getting cold at night, because I sleep in a sweater hahaha. And the Sisters that were here left some covers, so if I wanted I could use those. As you know, I left mine behind a long time ago.

So, the Mexican restaurant was closed last week. Sadly. We went to Habib's instead, which is an Arab fast food thing. Really good.

Interesting Sunday dinner was mocotó [cow hoof stew]. Basically we just asked Marta if she could make it, because we had all been wanting to try it.'s really soft and rubbery kinda, which was the worst part. It's not that I didn't like it, it honestly wasn't bad once you got past the texture, but it's still not my favorite thing to eat. It was good to try it though, a good experience. We sucked the bones and everything. (That phrase sounds better in Portuguese - chupou os ossos).

So, news! We are teaching a Raimunda, who will get baptized on Saturday! It was really cool, we've been praying a lot for her, and then when we made the invitation she said that she would, and she doesn't want to put it off any more. So that was awesome! 

Also, in HUGE news, I got your guys' packages!!! They're amazing! Sorry, I couldn't resist, I had to open them. So thank you so much! 

We also had a zone conference with President, it was cool. I went back to Samambaia for a little bit :) In big news, that was really it. 

Anyways, that's about it for me.  And sorry for the length of this e-mail, my fingers are too cold to type much. I love you! Have a great week!
