I’m heading to Brazil later today so I may not be able to cross post on FB and Google+ while gone.
You’ll spread more than a little holiday happiness my way if you would share the posts you like on FB with your friends on my behalf while I’m away.
I do anticipate writing some posts when I am in Brazil since I will have a lot of quiet and down time but my regular activity will not resume until I return from my vacation with my in-laws after the New Year’s holiday. Enjoy this bit of Brazilian man candy who we met last year when we visited Paraty. For more photos from that trip link here.
Two weeks from tonight I will be boarding a plane to fly to Brazil where I will spend the Christmas and New Year’s holiday. This will be the first time in several years that I will be in Brazil for the Christmas holiday and while I’ll miss the holiday traditions Sergio and I have made for ourselves here in Boston, I’m looking forward to the warmer weather and time with my in-laws.
Later today Brazil plays Germany in World Cup. This week’s Temptation Tuesday is to entice all of you who may visit my blog to turn on the game (starts at 4pm ET) and cheer for Brazil.

While the entire world fixates on Brazil for the next few weeks to watch World Cup, America will barely take note. Perhaps this photo of this handsome Brazilian might get your attention. Hexa Campeao!

São Paulo is one of my favorite cities in the world to spend a few days. With a metropolitan area that includes approximately 21 million people, it also makes it one of the world’s biggest cities and their pride celebrations reflect that with an estimated 2 – 3 million Paulistas and visitors from all over Brazil, South America and the world coming to one of the largest Pride festivals in the world.
The Pride Parade will begin in approximately one hour. You can check out the pride route courtesy of Gay Pride Brazil here.
Happy Pride São Paulo.
Perhaps it was grabbing dinner with our friends Hunter and Cole on Saturday night or maybe it is all the photos of Carnaval that I’m seeing online, but I’m missing Rio. I can’t believe three months ago I was relaxing on Ipanema beach. Summer cannot get here fast enough.
“Carnaval” a.k.a. Carnival in Brazil starts tomorrow. While there are many parties celebrating the start of lent, it seems to me all other parties look pitifully small when compared to Rio de Janeiro.
Feliz Carnaval Meninos
