Here it is, what we're thankful for here: I think I'll go in chronological order
Thanks Uncle Dave for sending us/me Fordlandia. For those of you who don't know it's a book about an American utopian village Henry Ford tried to build in the Amazon. There are a lot of references to Northeast Brazil, which is where we're living, so it's a very interesting read.
Thanks TAM airlines for getting us down here and giving me a sweet in-flight magazine that has articles in both Portugues and English! NEAT! Also on this note, a big UN-thanks to TAM for giving us seats with broken TVs on a 10 hour flight. Other than that, for those of you visiting us in Brazil, I recommend them.
|Flash cards I've made, a letter from the states, on top of Fordlandia, on top of our neighbor's old newspaper! Errr, also, sorry for sideways photo... I thought I could rotate, but apparently I cannot.|
Thanks to my Portugues tutor for helping me understand a little more Portugues, but loooots of thanks to Toby for being my dictionary/translator/tutor, even if that means I'm wrong fairly often.
|Left paragraph in Portugues, right in English, thanks TAM! A really well designed magazine, with really nice articles too.|
Let's see, one last one. Thanks new neighbors for recycling your old newspapers. We don't mind getting the news one day late....
