There is really something to be said about outdoor living…especially in December. But even ALL year round!! It really is wonderful. Actually I think South America living is THE best because even in Florida where many Canadians like to spend their winters isn’t as warm as South America. Although Mom & Dad Goode… I am sure you are loving the warmth right now!!
What can I say? Winters here are as beautiful as a Canadian summer, and Summers by the pool or one of the world’s most beautiful beaches is …let’s just say a DREAM COME TRUE!! Hmm…I need to remember that when the frustrations of bureaucracy here makes me want to blow my top!
It really is lovely. There are no bugs for the most part (except mosquitoes that you have to be a little careful of) so no screens on doors and windows. EVERYONE lives outside…eats outside, plays outside, socializes outside, day and night. Hey, my neighbor even does her ironing outside! We are not cooped up inside freezing…ok well some days we are when it is too hot outside so we stay in with the air conditioning on! But I have to say one of the perks of living in Brazil is Outdoor living!
There is always something beautiful in bloom no matter what the season. It is always green here even if the locals say it is is grey in the Winter ( well it’s just a duller green)
Seriously though, outdoor living is just easier!
Oh and by the way…I am just really glad we are in Resende, Brazil today December 3, 2012 instead of Shenyang China where they got walloped with a HUGE Blizzard!
Have a GREAT new week!
