So you must be thinking what a great time weŽre having...but let`s begin our journey.  First off, our backpacks were not sent to LAX. A total of 50 bags were left behind and you guessed it, ours were included. Now they have to send it to our hostel. We only have our daypacks and one set of clothes...the ones weŽre wearing! So we have to go buy our neccessities tonight and get reimbursed by Air Canada...hell ya Versace toothpaste and Gucci tooth brushes for the both of us!
Our luck could not get any worse you figure? In our second flight, supposedly we had one of the worst turbulence the pilots have experience in years...3 hours of turbulence...bright side? felt like a massage chair!
Next, we had only 20 minutes to get to our third flight...the drama begins.  We had 3 delays totaling 5 hours with nuthin to do..why?, cause everything is closed by 11 (we were delayed till 2am).  Excuses after excuse from Continental Airlines, we got a free drink and a discount on our next flight...VEGAS BABY!  So finally we hop onto the plane and discover after 10 hours of flying...we are heading to Sao Paulo...we were suppose to head to Rio...yes this is f*cked up.  Now our transfer flight to Rio has been canceled and weŽre waiting for them to open check-in at 7:00pm (Now 8:00pm..what a surprise).  At least we had our first Brazilian food and drink.  Not so good but we were hungry. Oh, we had our first Caipirinha (Brazils most popular drink)...weŽre buzzing as weŽre typing...WeŽll upload the pics on our next internet stop. WeŽre having a blast trying to learn Portuguese...I think we have like 5 words under our vocabulary...and counting! 
Again, backpacking ainŽt easy, but we are still having fun. 
P.S. We hope the bad luck has ended...but we ainŽt gonna hold our breath...

Hilarious! We were just talking about how common it is to lose luggages especially out of Houston. Never expected it en route to LAX....which gets me thinking, how the fuck do you lose 2 of the reddest, most brightest bags in the world?!?!. It just screams to be noticed!!! hahaha!
Glad to hear that you two made it to Sao Paolo safe.
Sad to hear that we just lost 2 of our 'regulars' and we are now in need of numbers. By the way, the day you guys left, Rod sent out a text still itchin to play. hahaha!

Peace out!

ps. a big 'BOOYAKA!' from Yume. ;)
