Foggy Morning


A bit foggy this morning here in Brazil. Showed this picture to my friend in China and she said ‘Oh it looks the same as Beijing’, to which I had to explain the difference between fog and smog.
Throwing down some money today on the Germany vs Ghana game. Finally a chance to wear my Germany jersey on a day when it matters most

Cada loco con su tema

An advantage of South American countries is all the soccer games on tv. Today is day 2 of the Eurocup and I’m hoping Ronaldo breaks his leg so Germany can pull through with a win. My cocky students, of course, want another shot at the champ and eagerly chose Spain because ‘well they won it last year so…’ I’ll take that bet. 

One of my students yesterday was talking about hookers (yes, as in prostitutes) and another student asked him what a hooker was. He told him that it was something you used when you fish. To which student #2 responded “Oh, hookers! Ya, I use them all the time, but sometimes they break and I have to get new ones”. <– I hate when that happens.
