I am very excited because today my brother is arriving from the states for a 10 day visit. It’s his first time in Brazil so naturally we have a lot of fun stuff planned. First, a trip to Brasilia this weekend packed with a couple days in Chapada dos Veadeiros National Park as well as a day exploring the Oscar Niemeyer work around the city. Next week we are also heading to Iguaçu Falls which I’m really looking forward to myself. It’s been at the top of my list for a while.
I really can’t wait to share my love and excitement for this country with my brother. Sometimes I wish I could experience everything all over again. My first açaí or caipirinha on the beach. My first time trying to dance forró, or getting caught up in a samba party in the street. The first sunset I saw setting over Rio. I can only hope that as my friends and family start to visit me, they can understand why I made this city my new home. I’ll be keeping you posted with lots of fun pictures of my upcoming travels so stay tuned. I’m breaking out the GoPro this weekend too! In the meantime, here are some of my favorite shots from the last week.
