I don't have too much time to post a major blog here... we are going to head down to the beach pretty soon. Mom and Sister are here and we have been busy busy busy!!! Everyday doing something and I've been having such a good time getting to know the city with them.
Some hi-lights for me have been:
- Going out for Ro's sister's birthday to dance Forro (a traditional Brazilian dance from the North East)
- Doing the favela tour in Rocinha, Rio's biggest favela
- Futebol game at Maracana
- Visiting Petropolis and the Parque National da Serra dos Orgaos
Tomorrow we're heading to Sao Paulo and Minas Gerais (yay!!) and I will post some pics later as well!
