Ouch! Brazil hurt the budget, but it was worth every penny. We had a fantastic time in Brazil! We really had a hard time coming up with anything we disliked. We got to do some really fun stuff in Brazil: we caught and ate killer fish, cheered like locals at the Botafogo soccer game, partied it out at carnival, enjoyed some of the most pristine beaches in the world, and stood in awe at the raw power of Iguazu Falls.
But all fun must end sometime. Saben busted up his knee and was lame for a week or so, the food was less than tasty (sushi excluded from that statement) and we spent more money than we should have but overall those are ridiculasly small ´´issues.´´ We absolutely loved Brazil!
