Well, since this is "Learn about Heather Week", heres a tidbit for you.
I lived in Brazil for 4 months over the course of two years during High School doing Health Works and related community service stuff.
2 months each time, during the summer.
I taught English, taught dental hygenie, built a community center, learned a lot about Brazillian culture and spoke Portuguese.
These photos are around 7 years old.
I went with a program called Amigos de las Americas. If you have any children around the age of 16 that needs some perspective in life, this is the program to send them to!!
I learned recently that the program stopped going to Brazil, which is very sad... Brazil is an AMAZING country, and place. I plan on going back there one of these days.
I have to admit that when I was told I was assigned to Brazil, I was actually upset. I didn't want to learn Portuguese!!! I spoke Spanish!!!
But all of that went away after I went the first time, and the second time around, I chose to go back voluntarily to Brazil. And it was totally worth it!
Here is a few of the community kids helping me at ground zero of the community center.
Now I fully admit that this is just Heather's musings, and nothing having to do with snakes whatsoever.
Did I see any snakes in Brazil when I was there? Yes, I did.
It was this thing, but pink..
And now that I have my snakes now, its actually gotten me more interested in herping in different countries. I wish I would have gotten photos of the snakes that I have seen over the years. Oh well.
Anyway, pairings for the week are:
