Making friends Now Loving Rio


So if you read my past post you will see that my first month in rio was not exciting and I was very upset about being here in rio…well it’s understandable since I did not speak potuguese and the Brazilians did not have any future plans of changing their language to what I am comfortable with which was English.

So I have stayed here for 2 months and it that period i have moved from botafogo apartment to ipanema apartment just me and my kids. So yeap it can be done. Just keep up the faith.

Then I think the icing on the cake is when I started making friends. I went on the app called meet up and I joined the TLC warriors  (which is awesome fitness group on the beach) and for me I think that is what created the excitement to be in rio.

Then I joined rio friends and joined english conversation group….and yeap all is going super well. Am loving rio and there is always something to do with friends here.

Now my kids have very different view on this issue. Since they made friends right when we arrived in our botafogo apartment…and just loved the beach and all the things it has to offer.

So over all I can say you create home wherever you are placed at any particular moment of your life.

Here are a few  pictures of my new found life long friends (LLF’S).
