I've updated the blog with all sorts of wildness from the past week.
We've left Mantiqueira for Santa Efigenia, which is a 5 minute walk from the university... instead of a 45 minute to 1 hour and 30 minute bus ride! We're staying with Carla... more on that later.
In the meantime, send me "feel better" vibes as I have just today come down with the obligatory two-weeks-into-an-international-move cold (it's two days early). I've decided it's dengue. It's not.
