Cancel Accounts and other last day STUFF

David’s last day of work and just a short day because Today is the day to cancel all our accounts and pay bills,and do the odds and ends ready for our departure from Brazil. Simone is THE BEST to deal with such matters,  and she met with David after lunch to do this. It is very important to have someone that speaks Portuguese to do these kinds of things.

Thank you SO MUCH Simone for EVERYTHING you’ve done for us and helped us with!! We will miss you!! I hope you don’t mind I took this pic from Facebook. It is one of my favorites of you and it is how I always picture you… Beijos e Abracos !

Hopefully, after we cancel it will take them until tomorrow to cut us off…they are SLOW any other time. Although I had to cancel my VIVO on my ipad last Thursday and within minutes I didn’t have service. It would be nice to have gas for a hot shower in the morning and internet for just a bit longer.

You know all those miscellaneous receipts and papers you collect that normally you would put through a shredder, well we don’t have a shredder in Brazil and so David did what any Brazilian would do (Ok I don’t know what Brazilian’s do)…he made a trip to the country and had a little burning ceremony! Haha 🙂

This afternoon was one of the semi-final games in the FIFA Confederations cup. Brazil against Uruguay and I was home cheering!! The rivalry between Brazil and Uruguay is one of the biggest in world of futebol and one of the most unique despite the difference in size and population between the two countries. This is the last game for me to watch from Brazil and it was INTENSE!  Both teams are very good but Brasil WON!!!!! 2-1 🙂 Tomorrow is the other semi and Spain will play Italy. Maybe we can catch a bit of this game at the airport. Sunday is the FINAL in Rio at the Maracana Stadium and BRASIL is IN THE FINAL, so exciting!!!!  It is scheduled for 7pm Brazil time so that is 6am in the morning Monday China time. I am REALLY hoping I can find a channel at my hotel in Shenyang that is broadcasting the game!

Our last evening in Brazil and we went for dinner with a group of wonderful friends. People that are SPECIAL to us and who we have enjoyed special times with. Goodbyes are hard but with this group, we all know what it’s like because we are all expats and that is the expat life!

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.
