It is Day 3 in Brazil and we are starting to see some common traits among the people and packing our bags full of these stereotypes. And you and I both know that my blog wouldn't be complete without me sharing these with you.
I mentioned before that Brazilians are laid back but you don't know what laid back is until you have been to Brazil. At a restaurant, when we ask for our check, it does not matter when we want it, ...
The next day we had planned a huge day or walking and sight seeing to see as much as possible in the inner suburbs surrounding the centro area. First up was Parque do Ibirapuera about 2.5km from where we are staying. It’s a large park with museums, monuments and lakes.
