Time to change the clocks that is! Brazil, unlike China observes daylight savings time and because it is Spring here, ohh so weird to be saying that in October, but yes since it is Spring, it is time to set the clocks 1 hour ahead. Last night at midnight was the official time but I did it this morning. Well some things. I think it’s cool how my iphone, ipad, computer all just do it themselves 🙂
So that means we are 1 hour ahead of Nova Scotia, 2 hours ahead of Toronto, 11 hours behind Japan and 10 hours behind China. And when the time changes in Canada in November we will be 2 hours ahead of Nova Scotia and 3 hours ahead of Toronto! Try and keep all that straight!
Hmm? What to do today? We are already an hour behind…I mean ahead…I mean we lost an hour so gotta get moving!
Enjoy your Sunday!
Update~So what did we do?
Well we went to a Chinese market in Brazil! Well a Chinese market of sorts! It’s the kind where everything there is FAKE. There were lots of shoes and clothes and handbags and jewelery. NOW I know where Brazilians get the expensive looking bling they wear on such low salaries. There was also fruit and vegetables, fresh meat and cheese, and gourmet cakes. And what would a market be without animals. There was fish and birds and the most adorable puppies. We almost came home with a couple of birds but figured that would be too spontaneous so we’ll think it over. It was a lot of fun on a very hot day and both David & I said that it seemed so much like China…but Brazilian style!
Here are some fun pics in no specific order. The market is a Sunday only market in the city of Volta Redonda about 45km away…
