Get ready to CELEBRATE!!!
From Brazil to China…this weekend, starting tomorrow, is the beginning of the Biggest Celebrations of the Year for both countries. In Brazil, it’s Carnival and in China, it’s Spring Festival ( or Chinese New Year) Both events are HUGE in their countries and it just so happens that this year they are at roughly the same time.
And in CHINA
Both of these celebrations include a lot of various festivities, time with family, and travel. Many Brazilians, Chinese and expats we know use this extended time off work to travel. We booked a week vacation at the end of Carnaval, and plan to do some day trips this weekend and early next week. ( Once we realized David had an extended weekend, we tried to book a couple overnights BUT everything we wanted was SOLD OUT!!) Many of our friends are traveling…we have friends spending the time in Rio for all the BIG celebrations, we have family in China visiting Cambodia, as well as friends traveling in Australia/New Zealand, Thailand and Hawaii. It so nice to have the break mid winter. As for us…next week this time we will be getting packed for our Caribbean cruise! I can’t wait!!
All this week has been kind blah and rainy so I have been inside researching and doing computer stuff. Hope the weekend weather is nice…(maybe a BIG snowstorm for NS?)
Have a great day!
