After our short stop at Iguazu Falls, we were back on another flight for Rio de Janeiro. This was John’s favorite place he visited when in Brazil last November. It’s amazing how nice and relaxing flights are when you don’t have two toddlers to entertain! Don’t get me wrong, I was missing those sweet kiddos like crazy, but I was not missing flying with them ;).
The first day we had in Rio we visited the iconic Sugar Loaf or Pão de Açúcar in Portuguese. Being in a country that spoke Portuguese was challenging for me. It did help me see how much my Spanish has improved with living in Lima, but I was discouraged at how little I understood of Portuguese! John had been taking lessons for the past year, so his was good enough to get us around, which was a good thing since I was basically useless on that front!
