Well, as Tink mentioned in her recent post, we met up in NYC on Sunday, which was just so cool.
On Monday, we left for Brazil. Little did we know that it would be a very hectic, and very long trip. Short story...
Our plane left NYC almost an hour and a half later than scheduled. We missed our connecting flight from Sao Paolo to Rio de Janeiro, even though we were told that we wouldn´t. Thought we were going to be spending the night in Sao Paolo, but at the last minute (literally) got on one last flight to Rio, which arrived late, and left late. Our transfer that was supposed to pick us up in Rio was not there, understandably. We ended up getting a taxi to our hotel, paid for by TAM Airlines, and got to our hotel around 3 in the am. Woke up around 8:30, ate breakfast, bought some sunscreen, and went to the beach.
Saw many, many skimpy bathing suits being worn by people who should never consider wearing that little of clothing. **Edit: People that looked even scarier than I did in a bathing suit, if you can believe it.**
Drank out of a coconut.
Went back to the hotel and watched the E! Channel (that´s for you, Summer) and took a long, long nap. Ate a wonderful, cheap (by American standards) Brazilian dinner, along the lines of Tucanos in Albuquerque.
And now I´m here in an internet cafe typing this. Was so happy to have a nice, relaxing day since the last few days have been very busy. Oh, and I also have cankles now, thanks to sitting on a plane for about 9 1/2 hours.
