Have to be Flexible on rainy Foggy days!!

This morning we slept in! EVERYONE was a little bit tired. For Andrew & Kristina, I think the lack of sleep is catching up then Andrew really needed a good breakfast, and a sandwich and fresh orange juice did the trick!

It’s still a little bit overcast today so not really a good beach day but we thought maybe ok to see the two places that make Rio FAMOUS! Christ Redeemer and Sugar Loaf! Unfortunately when we got to the Trem to buy tickets for Christ Redeemer everything was so fogged in that you couldn’t even see the statue. This is such an icon of Rio that we decide to try another day. We have two more days in Rio and surely one of those will be good to do Christ Redeemer and Sugar Loaf and another day for quality beach time. We parked in the same spot we did with James to go up the Trem so at least they saw this really cool house.

A change of plan, and so off we went to see the Lapa Arches, Selaron’s Stairs, the interesting old buildings in Centro and the Fiera de Sao Cristovao. We enjoyed churros and exploring the markets.

It was raining pretty hard this afternoon so we relaxed at the apartment a while before going out to find a Churrascaria kilo restaurant and then to do some shopping at the night market.

Since tonight wasn’t a late night like last night we had chance to have Andrew’s Birthday cake!

It was a great day but seriously, tomorrow we NEED sun!! We haven’t had this much fog, drizzle and rain since we’ve been in Brazil. I think Andrew & Kristina brought it with them… 🙂

Boa Noite!

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.
