I am a bad blogger.

I figured since today is the 4-week mark of being in Chile, I should probably catch up on my blog before it becomes ridiculous. I meant to have a nice long post about all the adventures in São Paulo, but now that sounds daunting and outdated. That news is so 5 weeks ago. Basically we ate…

Home sick and homesick

Monday was our first day in São Paulo and I was so ready to be a tourist! Unfortunately, I was quite ill. I have no idea if I had food poisoning or caught something, but let’s just say I needed to be near a bathroom and wanted to be left alone. Any traveler will tell…

Vacation Within a Vacation

Drive fast, take chances

Earlier this week Cadu and I went out for dinner and the parking lot scene made for a humorous cultural experience and inspired me to write this post. Cadu and I called the restaurant in advance to ask how full the parking lot was. We wanted to drive, but Cadu knew the lot was small…
