Report port port :P

Shame on me! It seems like ages that I haven't been here! Well, and it surely is (at least lots of months!). This way, noone can keep track, tsts. I promise to better myself in this matter! I'm gonna come once a month at least to say something, ok?!

Barigui park, the park near my house , with capivara (this
animal in front of the water) and buildings in the back

I'm fine, doing my university studies and trying to keep up with everything.
The praxis at the hospital takes lots of time, so I ended up not doing that job. Now I see that it was a wise decision, but at the time I decided that it almost cut my heart! I really love to teach, from small on, and speaking languages seem to be so much more fun and easy than studying the human body!

Not that I don't like the choice I've made when I started doing the Physical Therapy course at university! It's just that's much harder to get all the informations I need to take care of a patient. And this challenge sort of makes me love the course. I know, it's controversial, but what can I do? Human beings usually love what's harder to achieve.

Picture to the left: Paraná museum yard with two Araucárias in front of it (an Araucária is a beautiful pine tree, only seen in this state and for whom we are proud)

Picture down: Largo da ordem, the historical centre of Curitiba and old town market place, where on Sunday mornings we still have a nice handicraft market

My parents are now for 5 or 6 years looking for the perfect house to live in Curitiba. They finally seem to have found the perfect one, but there are lots of burocracy and other people interested in buying it. For us, it would be perfect because dad would have his space for the books (we have an apartment library instead of an apartment right now!), mum would have the whole crew together again (at least for some time (:) and we would finally eat all together in the same table again. I hope this situation can be cleared till end of the year. Would be ace to move into a new home in the beginning of the year!

Yesterday I've started to go to one of the small groups that we have at church. I used to go to them before, but it's now a completely different group, though I know good part of the people that are in them. We talked about Revelation 7 and had a quite good discussion about end of times and how the heaven might be. I specially liked an explanation that one of the girls said about heaven being like a baby in the womb of a woman. It is nurtured by her own mother, it doesn't need anything else than just staying in there in the grace of being caried safefully. (:

And what's so still happening with me this year: My paper presentation is in 3 weeks, lots but really lots of studies to do for uni and the visit of my fiancée to Brasil in December/January. Yay!
