Megan's Highlights and Lowlights, in no particular order:
*Visiting BIBI juices four times in three days, and getting multiple juices each time: acai, goiba, morango, manga, abacaxi, carambola, cupuacu, amora, acerola, and others I'm forgetting right now.
*Monkey at the Jardim Botanico!
*Most colorful and artful grafitti I've ever seen... covers almost every surface in the city.
*Air conditioning, no dogs barking and a curious lack of mosquitoes.
*Diana (one of our classmates) and her parents' generosity of living quarters, time, knowledge and English-speaking skills during our visit.
*The view from the Christ the Redeemer hill
*The best brand name ever: Personal VIP. It's toilet paper. So awesome.
*Ipanema and Thomas's laughs every time the waves hit his feet.
*The neeeeeeeeeevvvvvveeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrr-eeeeennnnnnnnnnnnnddddddddinnnnnnnnnggggg bus ride back to Barao Geraldo.
*Taxi ride through St. Theresa neighborhood... it felt a lot like San Francisco, just a little more down on its luck. I want to stay here on my next visit.
*First taxi driver in Rio ran off with mom's money. Seriously not cool. You've got some bad karma now, fella.
*Caipirinha, how I love thee.
Thomas's Highlights, in no particular order:
*Pretty Ladies who smile and blow kisses at me everywhere we go.
Okay, to sleep now. Our new class starts tomorrow and we've been warned that we will hurt.
