    ... migrants.

    There was a TV crew there from TVCamara, one of the Brazilian TV channels, and as we were about to leave they asked if they could interview me. They did a dummy run, presumably to make sure I wasn't a complete waste of film, and then did the interview, in which I talked a lot of rubbish about vintage and glamour and the individual. They probably wished they'd asked somebody else.

    ... of the similiarity of their names, or possibly they would do this anyway, the campaign focuses more on their candidate numbers rather than their names. As Paul says, it's like an episode of The Prisoner in reverse.

    ... to speak Portuguese.

    It has gotten very chilly tonight, so I took a shower and jumped under the blankets waiting for my roommates to return. This has been a very special trip and we have had so much more time to build relationships. There is much teasing and laughter and lots of smiles. I haven't left yet but I am already looking forward to the return next year. I hope that some of you will join us so you can see firsthand what a blessing it is to be ...
