Blog #3

I’ve now been with my host family for one week. It’s been beautiful.

My Portuguese vocabulary has expanded exponentially and I’m excited to
share the three best words that l learned this week:

1. sinuca – pool (the game not the body of water)
2. botas de chuva – gum boots
3. mamâo – papaya (we have it every day for breakfast)

My three photos:

this is nailah. she is an alum from 2016 (?). she was the one responsible
for safely guiding us through all of the airports. also she gave great
packing advice during the summer. also she has the brightest smile around.

thanks for reading! xxoo
