We are in Rio finally. It was a long bus ride, but we made it fine. We got to the apartment that Kenny had found for us and it is amazing! The first day we walked around for a while and took a nap around 8pm, always a good idea. I didn´t make it up after that, but caught up on sleep. Kenny and Joey and Ellen went out for food around midnight. The next day after heading to the market and having lunch in, we went to the beach. What a scene. So many kinds of people, totally crowded, just like you see on the travel shows. There is something for everyone. Some of us swam a lot, others sat under an umbrella and had some coconuts, some had beer. I feel like we are living the life. Seven more days. I can handle that! Oh, and the morning volleyball scene is really cool too. I am horrible at playing in the sand, so I just watch in awe. Maybe I´ll try one of these mornings.
