I walked around a Virginia shopping mall yesterday. It was very fun. I bought souvenirs for my friends.

Then, we went back to our hotel at 9:00 p.m., I met Brazilians at the lobby. After the short conversation, somehow I and one of the Brazilian women whose name is Deizi went an ice cream date.

I am not good at speaking English, she is also. My first language is Japanese and her first is Portugese. So, it was difficult to make up a conversation. But it was a valuable dialogue because I could learn about Brazilian soccer, music, politics, economics and culture. I also explained Japanese culture, food, music and politics to her. When we finished the conversation at 11:30 p.m., I was tired very much but it gave me a feelinmg of satisfaction.
