The temple shut down for maintenance and cleaning May 23rd until June 6th. They had to shut down the power and water in the housing complex as well and did some spraying for bugs. This meant that we had to leave for part of the time. Part of the time became the full 2 weeks. We went to live for this time with another missionary couple who have been serving here for 6 months but are still waiting for their call to arrive. The Bro. and Sis. Mello live about and hour and a half Northwest of Campinas.

Notice the street signs on the corner of the house. Also there are always grates on the windows.
Verae enjoyed the bird watching so much that she spend half a day trying to get pictures and movies of the different kinds of birds, and all the colorful plants.
We added a lot of pictures to the previous web album of Paraty.
