Bovinu´s (Churrasco Heaven!) and Crazy Weather for the 4th of July

So last P-day was our last with Elder Dos Santos which was a bit of a bummer but we did some cool stuff to make up for the short time. First off for lunch we went to Bovinu´s (pronounced how it looks with a Brasilian accent) which is a Churrascuria (Brasilian Steak House) (shoo-ha-skoo-ree-uh) in Centro (like down town) Santa Maria. And oh my goodness! It was churrasco heaven! The way that it works at a churrascuria is that there’s a buffet line of normal food, can’t forget the beans and rice, and then the servers come around with all different sorts of meat on swords that they serve to you. And since we were one of the first ones there in the restaurant it was non-stop meat- too good! And then after a lunch of "exceeding joy!" (a joke that we have where we say exceeding joy and spaz out like we are falling to the ground with exceeding joy as they say in the scriptures) 

Yummm- churrasco

We did a little secret Santa tie exchange and everyone drew the name of another elder and we bought ties for one another as a commemoration of our awesome household brothership, and because ties are very useful. 
Tie Exchange -everyone is holding up the tie they got for the other Elder

Last day with a good friend- I'm wearing the tie he got me :)

And this week we had some crazy weather! It’s been cold and super rainy as of late. And now the weather is deciding to switch between raining really hard then the sun coming out and getting really hot, crazy. A side note Elder Usieda was sick all Thursday and so we stayed in our house, and so I had a lovely study the scriptures all day session saving me from a good dousing of rain then hot sun back to rain again (tender mercies sort of). And the weather was no different on Friday for the 4th of July. But rain or shine that didn’t stop the Brasilian people from shooting off a bunch of fireworks and honking horns and yelling in the streets when Brasil beat Colombia in the world cup. So I celebrated a little bit on the inside too for ´Merica! And in honor of our family cookout I ate a xis for lunch (shees, a Brasilian burger). And the weather that night was doing some crazy lightning so I even got some of nature’s fireworks. 

Love you all and I hope you enjoy the pictures and another of week of summer!
