Rio de Janeiro: A Cidade Maravilhosa

Ipanema. My favorite neighborhood in Rio.

Taking a break from the beach to have a bowl of açaí.

Santa Teresa. The neighborhood still has the traditional early 1900s Rio look and still has a trolley that passes through main street

The city center is very crazy and crowded. Not for the faint of heart.

Except Ye Become As Little Children

People sometimes ask me why I love Brazil so much. Today while pondering the exact reason, I had an epiphany--I feel no prejudice there. Like a child that has not had the time or experience to develop any sort of preconception, that's how I feel in Brazil. It's a fresh perspective and I enjoy every new opportunity and every new friend. Perhaps that is one reason why Christ admonished us to be as little children.

God Be With You til We Reunite Again

Hi Family,
I spent this week at work wishing I could have been able to stay in Idaho and enjoy more company, but I am glad for the quick 2 days I was able to spend with ya'll. It would be great if we could make this an annual event as Samantha suggested on her blog. California is sweet, Brazil is even better, but I would trade all that for more hot tub pow-wows in a second. Love you all and hope we can get together again soon.
