Our New Home – Rio de Janeiro

Leblon, Rio de Janeiro

This is the 5th overseas home for our nomadic family and our first time in South America. We are thrilled thinking about the new experiences, discoveries, and adventures that await; and a little intimidated too. We arrived the 1st of August and three days later our children started school and my husband started work. Yes my kids were gypped; their Northern Hemisphere summer vacation was cut short. However, I reminded them that they would have TWO summer vacations this year. With kids and husband busy learning, working, and making new friends, I am left in our temporary apartment equipped with the bare basics in furnishings and kitchen utensils. We are anxiously looking forward to the day when we move into our permanent residence and both our household goods and car arrive. In the meantime, we have started to explore this fabulous city, and we are loving Rio’s wonderful winter weather.
