That's about all I've got for you right now. I had my first night in my homestay last night, which was great, but it takes such an incredible amount of energy just to come up with "Boa noite" and "Bom dia" much less find out where to put my laundry, and good God, take the bus. Anyway, I made it back to IBEU (Instituto Brasil Estados Unidos, where SIT has its program center) with Gracilene, my host mom. I'll update more later, though I somewhat doubt that the exhaustion situation will improve until I get used to the quarter-hourly train which goes by the apartment starting at about 6:00 AM. I'm sure I will, though - I slept like a rock until then. I also hope I'll stop sweating with quite such intensity - Brazilians don't seem to sweat, ever.
