1. The view out of our appartment in Cova Figueira. You can see the volcano a bit in the back. All the beaches here are black but we are pretty far from it so I haven´t seen any up close.The internet is really slow with pictures so I don´t know what I will be able to send. I will send one at a time until I am kicked off.
While this loads I will write more. So everyone here is black. And if you didn´t understand before, pretty much none of them speak portuguese and so they are super hard to understand. Its good though. I will catch on enough to get the just of what they are saying if I am here long enough. I don´t know how long I will. Could be 1 transfer, could be 8-9 months. Probably somewhere in the middle.
We aren´t really aloud to eat at members houses but we ate at the branch presidents house this week becuase they know that they have to prepare our food a certain way. It was really good. Rice, beans, chicken, a bit of potatoes. It was good. We don´t have dinner here. We get up, eat breakfast, study, then go out for a bit, come home for two hours from like 1-3 and make lunch and then stay out until 9 or 9;30 and maybe have time to make a snack before sleeping. I´ve been passing out pretty much as soon as we are don´t planning the first few days becuase we missed sleeping the two nights we were traveling, and we walk a lot all over up and down and side to side because we live on the side of a volcano. All the rocks are black and stuff.
I for sure will only be able to send this one picture because it takes forever. Sorry I´m not in it. Next week hopefully I will be able to send 2 or 3 because I will just start off sending it while I write the text elsewhere and then send it after the picture sends.
So, the picture failed after 7 mins of loading, so I will try again next week I am out of time. It was a great picture though.
