This is a picture from up in the rain forest somewhere. Eric and I went on the coolest tour and saw all the sights. We've been spending a lot of time at the beach in Ipanema - I am NEVER going to get tired of seeing teeny, tiny, thong bikinis. Holy sexy time. I surfed yesterday too, it was pretty good - but enough about that, the bikinis are awesome.
So of course we are seeing the sights. The Christ was actually really awesome. It was HUGE!!! (That's what she said) And super high up in the mountains. Seeing this on TV just doesn't do it justice.
Why do girls love Jesus? Because he's hung like this!!! Bahahahaha!!!!
Yep, I'm going to hell on a scholarship...
One thing I didn't know is that there is INSANE graffiti here. These guys are talented.
Food. I love food. We've had some pretty awesome meals, and drinks. And when you hang out with people who are also on extended vacations with nuthin' to do, you pretty much have a beer or two with every meal. Why wouldn't we want a beer!? Oh, and we discovered that we don't get hungover in Rio. No 5 Hour Energy necessary.
It hasn't all been amazing though. This morning I stubbed my toe, and that sucked. OH! And my toenail finally fell off!!! Rosie, its in the mail, as promised...
This is on the Lapa Steps with the artist (in the hat) that did all of this tile work over the last 30 + years. It was really cool. A lot of it was historical and political too.
Oh, and I was the blue Power Ranger. That's how Eric and I met. He was the red one.
So while taking this picture I was totally wanting this thing to just attack Eric's face. I would have pee'd my pants. Oh relax! He was thinking the same thing when I was playing with my monkey!!!
Okay, so when we first arrived we went to this hostel that sucked, so we just stayed one night and then moved to another GREAT hostel. BUT, that one night we were at the shitty hostel, we went to a Football Match (Soccer) and started talking to this girl from Mmmmmmmmmmmississippi. Her name is Mary. She is awesome. We adopted her for 7 days and took her along with us everywhere we went. Planned her excursions and meals. Made sure she brushed her teeth and tucked her in at night.
She was the sweetest southern girl in the world, but it was like traveling with a toddler. WE LOVE AND MISS YA MARY!!! We'll see you soon.
This is the pic from Sugar Loaf at sunset.You can see the Christ on the right. Josh, it was EPIC!!!
Eric left yesterday and I'm here till Friday, did a booze cruise last night and had a blast. Eric, you missed out on that one. Actually, you ALL missed out on that one. I'll post pics next time. I miss you buddy!!!
|"What are you, Coconuts?!"|
I love me some me....
This was Mmmmmmmmmmmmississippi Mary's last night. We stayed up with her til 4AM to make sure she got in the cab okay. The last day at the beach she was determined to get tan... I yelled at Eric for letting her get so burnt. The three of us was literally like a seven day episode of My Two Dads...
And Rio got Gaucho'd. Boom.
Meetin' Mark in Panama on Friday! So, until next time...
