Eu tenho saudades do Brasil. In light of my constant desire to be back in Brasil, I’d like to share photos from my travels there. Flying into Rio, I felt like I was coming home. To me, Rio is the most wonderful meeting place of city, jungle, and ocean. I could definitely see setting up in the artist town of Santa Teresa and getting my daily fill of açai. After Rio, I cruised up with some new friends to Bahia where I found a little piece of heaven called Morro de São Paulo. One of my favorite memories in South America was created while exploring that island…imagine walking barefoot with locals into the middle of the rainforest, only to be greeted with the fresh catch of the day, singing, and caipirinhas in under a handmade hut. Can’t complain, huh? I also spent some time in the beach town of Buzios, where the beaches were freckled with small fishing boats and Cariocas basking in the sun. It’s no wonder I constantly look up one way tickets back to Brasil.
