Sunday we had a tour of the island, seeing the beach felt so good. Monday and Tuesday consisted of Portuguese class for a few hours at a "language club" near our hotel (which is very nice by the way with a cozy feel, but different from American hotels - no phone, no soaps or shampoo that come with the room, maid comes once a week), then we took a rented bus to the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina for classes taught by the professors there.
Argentina played today (Friday), how amazing! The team looked absolutely amazing and domininated Serbia-and-Montenegro 6-0. Their style is phenomenal and looked to be merely toying with their opponenents. I slept through a lot of the game because I was so tired. Yesterday we went to the beach (Brent, Norberto and I hitchhiked, which is much more normal here) in the morning, where we played tons of soccer (with Brazilians, dam they're good!), went dune surfing (like snow boarding, but in sand, really sweet!), then took a bus back to the hotel and immediately went to play 2 hours of soccer in a nice court we had reserved.
The beach yesterday (Thursday) was absolutely amazing, I am going to try to put up some photos. The water so clear (and cold, but okay once you got in), nice sand like Clearwater beach FL, not crowded at all b/c its winter here, 70-75 farenheit, clear blue sky, and of course the ladies and their famous bathing suits. Truthfully, it felt like home except that we played football instead of football americana or volleyball and there were more beautiful women wearing skimpier bathing suits. Tons of fun.
Well that's all for now, Love you guys! :) -Derek
