|6.- 26/11/98 The Heat Of Araraquara
Sunday in Araraquara not much happening so I followed people onto a bus and then to a large soccer stadium. Where I was surprised to see new cars parked on the pitch. 10,000 people had come to play Bingo !
Tuesday I went to give a small class at Upto You school which turned out to a lecture to 30 people (thanks Juliana), but I managed to carry it off.
Thursday I went to Sao
Carlos I dropped by the Federal University, but the staff don't
work between 12 and 3 so I didn't get to speak to anyone. In the evening
I gave 3 classes at the CCAA there which went very well I think. Still
I was stressed out by them so I had a big cup of Brazilian tea; which turned
out to be very strong. I actually got drunk on caffeine
and hour later I had a thumping headache at the back of my head and then
woke up with another in the middle of the night.
I'm really enjoying helpinng Mike with his students and am quickly improving my techniques . I hope to pick up some extra work soon.
It's very hot here about 35 C , but I don't mind cos it's dry not humid and we have a pool.
maybe I might put up my Portuguese diary soon.
