Andrea: These are our lives for the next year! Vern thinks we overpacked and I have to disagree with that. It will definitely be a challenge, but let's hope we hurry up and use those 10 packs of tissues we bought for toilet paper to free up half the bags.
We fly tomorrow at noon to our first stop, Rio! We stay in a hostel the first 2 nights and then a hotel, which is actually cheaper than the hostel during Carnival! We'll be in Rio for about 8 days. Hopefully we'll be able to update from there if we haven't been snowed in from feathers, glitter, beads and drag queen sweat. For now, it's off to bed as it's been a really long last day in London. Good night!
