A very quick message on this very old and slow computor! we are having the most incredible time...arriving in rio on monday night was exciting and scary. Flying into rio during sunset was unbelievable- a city surrounded by a rainforest! Since then we´ve met some amazing people, had breakfast with monkeys and been to a paradise island by boat called Ihle Grande. The food is the best we´ve ever had, the weather amazing (sorry tom!) and each day gets better and better! My portuguese is coming along nicely, and we´ve managed to make friends with a lawyer, doctor, engineer, social worker, israeli, and web designer so far!
Were off to lapa with everyone tonight- the heart of basialian samba im rio...Tmommorow, footabll at the famous macarena and handgliding... im sorry for such a brief message but will update with more details and pics this weekend. Love to you all...we are safe and happy and having the absolute time of our lives.
