We always like passing the temple and meeting the young sister missionaries. They always have big smiles and are excited about their work here in São Paulo. Two are from Bahia, one from Curitiba, and one from Florianópolis.
There is a big dip in the road by our apartment building that catches buses if they don't get it just right. It backs up traffic until they get them unstuck.
We have a handyman at the offices that can fix anything from mechanical problems to electrical problems.
Monday we were in charge of Family Home Evening. We gave a cultural lesson on the 64 national parks of Brazil. Diane had the dinner of rice bowls - rice with a lot of toppings. It was very good.

We had a WebEx (Internet communications) meeting with other Area Technology Specialists from Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas. I guess we aren't too far off base with what we are doing in Brazil.
We had a wonderful General Conference this weekend and were able to get most of it on our TV (thanks to ROKU) with just a few internet glitches. We thought we wouldn't be able to get out this week, but the first session of conference starts at 1 pm, so we were able to go out a bit in the morning.
Saturday morning we went to the candy store and a Saturday feira (market). We were able to find several things we have been looking for (wheels for our shopping cart, screen for the kitchen drain, a bug zapper, and ginger).
