now finally the mad part of my trip has begun.
Yesterday i arrived here in Araraquara - a 200 000 people city 5 hours inland from sao paulo - a lot quieter han the 20 mil metropole!
Here my friend Daniel who i was in Australia with picked me up - so happy he had a car! Thanks god!
We went to his place and i could not believe what i saw - i thought he drove me to a party straight away - well and something was fishy nearly all the guys looked like they have some tropical diseas where they loose their hair....
Well everything came clear when daniel explained - at first the party was actually his house a so called Republica named "Copacabana"its like a student house - well its nice huge garage for 5 cars - a swimming pool - even a mate who cleans and cooks all day - sounds nice but only a little crazy - the crazy part is that in this houses probably made for 8 people if they get along well - atm there are 26 people plus me living in it - so mad!!
The tropical diseas is as follows: The ney freshman - so the new 1st year students have to get their head shaves - some got an x - some look like clowns - mad stuff - whenever a higher grade dude wants something they have to do it - like buy beer and such - so mad - i am lucky i havnt started uni - all my hair!
So i got to know about 15 of em straight away - so friendly those brazilians - tought me how do do caipirina - and so i got to go visite other Republicas as well - same thing people everywhere playing plazstation - drikin n stuff - also they have seperated sexes - so we went to a female one as well - mad so many girls in 1 little room - well so the night continued and we went to a party - like every single time 6 people in 1 car every time i swear - well so 4 or 5 cars full with uni students - drunk and willing to party!
Well we went like outside the town some random place - and payed 4 euros each - i only had another 2 euros and thought i am screwed - but actually they told me its open bar - so all free beer and cachasa shots all night - mad - a live band as well and mad party - it was a bit hard to get introduced to about 40 guys and 40 girls that night - and as friendly as brazilians are they always ask questions and talk to u...
To u guys surprise i am getting quite fluent in portugese as i only speak portugese all day and that a lot cause people talk about brasilian soccer players and brasilian girls all day
And tru that and beer actually are live here - so good!
When we got home so funny - well the 25 drunk dudes had to sleep somewhere - so funny welll i got some matress on the floor - but it was such a great picture - as we got home 4 guys watched the bayern munich - schalke game that was from the weekend! so funny - other al went to sleep - this house was scattered with drunkend dudes lyig anywhere thy could find a spot - probably not thair own beds i am sure!
Well this morning feelin a bit weary but i will go fo a fresh juice and some mangos now and so i get some more sleep - actually as u can imagine not easy sleeping with 30 dregrees all day - 3 dudes in every room - 10 other guys listening to loud music talking n stuff - u can imagine!!!
OK that for now!!! Have a good day
