10 Days To Show James The Place We Call HOME in Brazil: DAY 2

TODAY’S HIGHLIGHTS: Meet the “Resende Girls” , Explore Resende Historic District and Eat At A Por Kilo Restaurante.

The “Girls” and I get together most days of the week and go for a walk and explore some area of Resende, and sometimes we go out for lunch. When they heard James was coming they wanted to meet him and thought we could go for a walk to the Historic District to see if there was anything interesting there to photograph, knowing he likes to do that sort of thing. James wasn’t too sure about being the only man with a group of ladies but I told him it would be OK and they really wanted to meet him. David had a Portuguese class and we said we would be back in time for a late lunch date with him.

I have been to the Historic District before and I think the buildings are really interesting. I have never been as far as the cemetery and we decided to go there today too.

James and I met Pam downstairs at 9:20.

and walked to a meeting spot where we caught up to Stacey and Marlene.

The Historic District is not far from where I live but it is mainly up hill so we decided to fore go our walk in the park this morning.

There are a lot of interesting buildings and the view is pretty good in some places but not quite the kind of stuff James goes for when looking for just the right photo. Besides he says a bright sunny, not a cloud in the sky kinda day isn’t always the best for what he likes. BUT,  Something caught his eye a few times and he went off in search of a way to capture it…

This time we went to the cemetery and I found this so interesting…

James & I thought it was interesting to walk through the rows of crypts some very new, some old, some very expensive and some very simple. There were places for in ground burial ( all Finnish people) and some boxes that were only to be used for 20 years…well then what? Hmm? We thought Papa would enjoy walking through a place like this…

We had a fun morning with the girls and then it was time to meet David for lunch. We went to another popular type of restaurant here, a por kilo restuarant. It is buffet and you weigh your plate of food. You only pay for what you are gonna eat. I think it is a great way to do buffet!

After lunch we went for a drive and then David had to go to work. And…like all good Brazilians James & I came home and had an afternoon siesta.

This evening we have been working on projects, James made smoothies for Dinner, and we are gonna watch a movie.

Love spending time with my boy!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
