Tomorrow I fly to some serious heat in the North East of Brazil to welcome the new year. 2014 has a good ring to it don't you think and I've got my correct coloured underpants (see here, great headline circa 2008) so we are good to go.
Amanhã eu vou voar para alguma lugar no nordeste do Brasil que é muito calor para bem-vindo o ano novo. 2014 parece ser bom né? e eu tenho o correto calcinha colorido. Vamos!

Last weekend I went to a tremendous beach here in Rio called Prainha. I highly recommend! Myself and my beach buddy collected many bits of cactus on our way home (all ten fingers still sore) and now I'm attempting to grow them in our window.
Need all the luck I can get.
This beauty is from here.

I once had a friend who pronounced mountains as 'mount'-'taines' (I have just discovered it's virtually impossible to explain that in writing) and now I find it difficult to say the word correctly. Anyhow, this guy I know climbed on massive mountain. Here he is at the top.

Holey moley, I just backed this, a very late birthday present to myself with the assistance of my family. Thank you! Does that mean I can claim to be an investor in something? I will now patiently wait for May 2014 for my very own incredibly great FlyKly.
Thanks geniuses for being genius.
One of my most favourite brands here in Rio, Aragem (such a lovely group of seriously talented ladies), instagramed me in their lovely canga (silky sarong type thing, difficult to describe, see below) yesterday at a fashion event here in Rio. There I am, enjoying a good awkward pose.
Sounds a little like the high life, I can assure you it was not but we did manage to sniff out the only free champagne in the venue!

I just got 'home' to Rio, after almost two week in Mexico. But I'm dreaming of NZ.
This isn't shot there but gives me all the good New Zealand feelings (so many more here). I would love an afternoon spent like this one sometime soon. Unfortunately here I think the most I'll be snuggly wrapped in will be a sarong!

I've been trying to get my a into g and start to make a kind of 'young travelers guide to Rio'. Slowly slowly I've been compiling the list in my head but to be honest it's easy to be lazy here and I've been enjoying it a little too much.
MUST BE FOCUSED.
So far my list goes like this. Perhaps if I post it here it will give me the kick that I need.
1. Helpful info about the next level rollercoaster buses and the bizarre BRS 1, 2 and 3 system.
2. The batman symbol I found in a vent in the Arcoverde metro station. Show.
3. Hareburger. That guy is a genius.
Hm. How is it only 3?
