One of my friends posted this on Facebook and of course, with a title like that I clicked on it. I have taken so many Women's Studies classes in college and I love things like this that make you question gender roles. She is an awesome male model, hot even! I hope you enjoy!
It is quite a rainy day. My umbrella was broken by the wind a few weeks ago and I haven't bought a new one, so I was soaking wet by the time I got home. I don't mind the rain here in Rio because it stays pretty warm, and because it makes all these beautiful flowers fall from the trees so that I can take them home.
The flowers just so happened to match my strawberry yogurt, almond, oatmeal concoction this morning. Off to a rosy start!
Hello! I just got back yesterday from a week in São Paulo, the largest city in South America! It was hard to get a sense of how big it really is, but the pictures I have seen of arial views make it seem never ending.
I spent the week with my friend Camila at her godfather's house. He was one of the most kind, funny, and generous people I have met, and not just in Brazil. I am constantly amazed at how giving this culture is and I definitely want to make it more a part of how I treat others. It is very inspiring. :)
Here are some pictures (about half of the ones I want to share, but my iPhone will only let me upload a handful at a time).
Fruit tart... delicious.
The Museu de Futebol is connected to an actual stadium so we got to take a peek at where all the action happens! I still haven't gotten a chance to go to a soccer game here, but it is on the agenda, especially when Tyson visits!
Rua Paulista, one of the big commercial streets in the city.

All of the states in Brazil, strategically placed to represent where each one lies.
