I’m blogging from my apartment in Bauru! This is a momentous occasion, in case you didn’t know. Tomorrow marks four weeks in Brazil, and we’ve just now gotten our wi-fi situation under control. Good things come to those who wait, eh?
Honestly, the break from TV and Internet was a good thing. It forced us out of the apartment even when we were tired or cranky to find entertainment. The point of this trip isn’t to be sitting on the computer all of the time. But that said, it’s nice to be connected again.
So how did we fill our time offline?
Well, Ashton got a pretty fly haircut.
He’s an international man of mystery.
We watched some pretty sunsets.
We also went to a play with some friends. We couldn’t understand a word of it, but still got the point and shared a few laughs with the rest of the audience.
Can you spot us?
Another favorite pastime is simply walking around getting to know Bauru and admiring the abundant street art.
Now that we have internet, I’ll probably spend more time at home catching up on work and keeping the dog company, but I don’t want to lose the spirit of those first few weeks.
My favorite thing about life here is that each day is different, an adventure. I’m starting to believe that not having the luxury of making a routine is actually a luxury in and of itself.
