Wednesday we went to the temple and did some shopping afterward (to help Mom get here steps!). Thursday we found out that the facilities folks had commandeered the apartment for our couple from the US and they were going to put the couple in a hotel while a visiting couple from Mexico used their apartment! I almost got fired for suggesting that the couple from Mexico be put up in the hotel so that the American couple could move into their apartment after a long trip, with all their bags etc. We worked it out as a compromise, the Americans just waited until Saturday night after the others left to move in, but at least they didn't have to stay in a hotel for two days!
Friday night we went up to Applebee's and met a young man (24) who I have communicated with on HelloTalk - an app that allows you to talk with others in a language you want to learn. I have about 70-80 people that I "talk" to occasionally in English to help them learn it. I sometimes ask them questions about Portuguese in return. Anyway, we met Murilo and had dinner together and it was very nice. He's looking into the church and it's teachings, so we're hoping that things work out and he joins! The food was also very good, the service was very slow - but we didn't mind because it was good company and we weren't in a hurry to get anywhere.
