Yes folks. I am going to leave for Brazil in 10 days and stay there for 10 days as well. I miss my second country so much that I can’t wait to get on the plane that will take me there.
I will be blogging while I’m in Brazil so stay tuned for my adventures. I am meeting good friends and will be celebrating my birthday there for the fifth year in a row. One really good friend is taking me out to dinner at a very fancy restaurant in Rio de Janeiro. I have known him since the first time I went to Sao Paulo five years ago. We’ve kept in touch all these years. I’ve seen him twice since I left and this time, we’re going to spend some quality time together.
It’s not going to be easy because we’re flying out of JFK in New York City, I think. Add that stress of traveling from Philadelphia to New York City on a flight that leaves early in the evening. As long as we can get to our flights on time and leave on time, I will be fine.
I’m traveling with two other Filipino friends. One of them, I have traveled to Brazil in the last three years. A new guy is coming with us. He’s never been so it will be an adventure for him. We will show him the beauty of Brazil and all that it has to offer. Of course, that involves a trip to Cristo Redentor (photo above) or Christ the Redeemer statue, Ipanema Beach, Pao do Azucar, and Copacabana beach.
I will be posting pics so please come back. I start my journey on the 23rd of this month.
