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)
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.
