OH, I've been there. I don't live there, though. I am at BA, a bit northern state from where you'll be. I see some exchange students on my school, and I ask myself, "HOW DID THEY GET HERE?" (Seriously, I live in the middle of friggin NOWHERE XD At least I say that, but my city is actually close to the coast)
Hahah I know what you mean. I thought the same thing when I saw exchange students at my school! But Brazil and America does A LOT of exchanges, so it's understandable. I'm really excited The ocean is literally right down the road from where I'm living. I've never seen the ocean before...
Excited is putting it mildly...I'm absolutely ecstatic! You have such a beautiful country, I can't wait to see it for myself! And Portuguese is such an awesome language! Being one myself, I've had a chance to meet a ton of other exchange students with all kinds of different accents, and I can honestly say I like Brazilian accents the best
Annnnyways! I'm so excited to see the ocean, but a little nervous at the same time. I'm not to thrilled with what's under it namely sharks, jellyfish, stingrays, ect. I'm a bit jumpy when it comes to things swimming in the water with me heh but i'll just have to get over that, i guess! And you come visit me!
