Brazil Trip Update #3ish
It is Saturday and I am trying to get my final exam created while my computer chooses to lock up at random moments.

Today Brazil is playing soccer against, I think, Italy and they asked me to postpone my class an hour and a half to allow everyone to watch it. I was happy to do so since I have work to do and that means Philemon won’t be in the apartment; rather, he will be with some of the students or faculty watching the game. I am still trying to get Philemon to try fried cheese and he is effectively avoiding it.
