Quick post (nothing special here). This week was my second week of intensive Portuguese classes. Next week, real classes start. I’ve been attending class a good amount, but I’ve spent about as much time surfing this week. Every day has been overhead – double overhead waves. This picture isn’t mine, but most of the time, it looked like this (except bigger):

Initially I thought surfing here would be a hassle. I expected less consistent waves, and more aggressive people, but it’s been great this week, and I haven’t had any problems with the locals, It’s been nice as I’ve started to pick up the surf slang and converse with others in the water.
This weekend, all the students in my program are going on a vacation. We’ll be going to Ilha Grande, and won’t have internet. Photos to come.
