It was a last-minute decision and I’m so glad we had the chance to do it! (next time, we’ll start the whole visa process a little earlier–holy work!) Brazil is something Cam and I have really wanted to do (Cam served an LDS mission there from 2009-2011). My favorite part honestly was seeing the places and meeting the people Cam served–it was so neat (and a little humbling!) to see it all. I remember hearing the stories in letters he wrote me while serving, but it was a whole new experience to see it in person. We also got the chance to Rio and IlhaBela as well, which were nonetheless beautiful! The culture, the people, the food, everything pretty much but the dogs and CRAZY traffic were amazing (though I always come home appreciating where we live even more!). I sure hope we can go back again soon! By then, I (fingers crossed) will know the language!
Tudo Ben! 🙂
Campinas: visits, wedding, temple, and the YUMMIEST dinners!
^^Doutor Edson, the man!
Rio: Cristo Redentor, Pao de Acucar, and Beach
^^Cam’s long-awaited taste of passionfruit!
^^We did NOT starve this trip (and I’m convinced with Cam, the rice and beans are unlike anything else!)
IlhaBela: Steep driveways :), Rainy Beach, and Nautical cabins
Meanwhile at home (everything was under control, we have the best Nannie & Papa ever!)…
