Culture Shock

Flag of BrazilYesterday my family welcomed the arrival of Rodrigo Martins, a Brazilian 16-year-old foreign exchange student, who will be living with us for the next 10 months. It took him about 24 hours to get here (Curitiba to Sao Paulo to Dallas to Chicago to Champaign), and a couple of hours to get him registered for school. When I left him this morning, he was settling in to Algebra II.
