I know. It´s been a while!
I wanted to talk to you guys about some recent struggles/events I´ve been through… But let me spill the details from my trip before I can go “deeper”.
I woke up at 4:50 am sharp on Friday. We had a 6 am flight to catch, so we should be at the airport by 5:30 am… Too darn early, I know!
We were extremely excited, but extremely tired, too. We all tried to make happy faces, though:
Lelê was definetely awake.
FYI - “azul” means blue :)
Before boarding, we stopped at the cafeteria. Mom imagined they´d serve food at the plane, so we only bought some snacks.
I ordered a fresh orange juice – tasted awful. I don´t know why – maybe it wasn´t really fresh? I drank only about 1/4 of it :/
Don´t worry - that´s not really Coke. It´s iced tea ;)
We took a bus to get into the airplane…
Lelê was definetely having fun :)
Then, we finally boarded.
Yup – Lelê slept.
The flight was quite pleasing – I didn´t even see the time passing. I finished reading a book I had to read for school (in french) and chatted with my sister Bruna for a while. No big deal!
Guess what they served us at the airplane?
Orange juice! How weird is that?
This one was a lot tastier, though – it has “Homemade Orange” written all over :)
Unfortunately, I only drank about a 1/4 – I had no time to finish, since we were landing! Oh, well.
We arrived at the hotel safely. We had the whole Continental Breakfast wating for us – we felt really welcomed ;)
Melon and pineapple chunks
Plus an apple
And a mug of plain yogurt with 1 1/2 tbsp of granola…
That tasted like crap. Eww. Lots of leftovers.
After breakfast, we were headed to Hopi Hari Park. YAY!
About the time we´ve spent at the park - I´m absolutely speechless. I´ll let the photos speak for themselves:
(Some of us) eventualy broke for lunch:
I did. Delicious italian bruschettas!
They didn´t stand a chance ;)
“Some of us” decided not to have a real meal, though:
Mainly sweet stuff.
Anyhow – it was an amazing experience. I even made a tattoo!
Leaving the “happiest place in Brazil”:
One word: F-U-N.
We were pretty exhausted when we got back to the hotel. Lelê took a quick bath and slept for the whole night. I wanted to do the same, but Mom said I should have a real bath and decent food before calling it a day. We took advantage of the the hotel service :)
Grilled Chicken Breast with mustard sauce and steamed veggies (carrots, green beans, cauliflower)
Black bean “soup” (actually made with kidney beans – anyhow..)
And my beloved fresh OJ! Gotta have my Vitamin C somehow ;)
The rest of the day was spent lazily… We had an early night!
Oh, wow. That was pretty long!
I guess I´ll continue my recap later… Test week starts tomorrow!
Wish me luck, guys!
