Exotic spring break

Olá from Brasil!

Okay, actually I'm back in the U.S. now, but I just returned from a wonderful couple of weeks in Brazil. We ate, we drank, we beached, we clubbed. School has been a lot of extra work this semester, and going off the grid was the perfect way to let all my worries disappear. Most things in Brazil were really cheap too, because the U.S. Dollar is strong right now compared to the Brazilian Real.

Here are a couple of photos I took in Rio de Janeiro:

Of the few days we spent in São Paulo, my favorite part may have been the 360 views from this rooftop bar:

Photo cred: veja São Paulo (my photos of this didn't turn out, sadly)

It was pretty unbelievable being on this rooftop, surrounded by urban structures, thinking that 12 million people (!) live in the city proper.

All in all, it was an unforgettable trip.

The beginning of this trip was also my personal deadline to evaluate my situation with Cam. I subtly let him know about the deadline, because he had been half-assing it for weeks. Cam never stepped up though, so I have washed my hands of him. And by doing so, while in Brazil, I was able to start a great friendship with a male classmate, and it might be a foundation for something more.


  1. I've been to that rooftop bar in Sao Paolo, it's pretty damn cool (and my pictures definitely did not turn out either) :) Rio is gorgeous too. Did you make it to Iguazu Falls?

    Good riddance, Cam! Sounded like he was a decent guy, but just couldn't put the effort in, which is not worth your time.

    1. Haha, no way - that's cool that you have been there too! I didn't go to Iguazu Falls, but I think one of my classmates (who extended her trip) is about to go there.
