Rio photos

Okay, here's two photos from our vacation in Rio. All the photos are on a CD which Micah's brother has so I got these photos from the few he's posted on line so far. Hopefully, in the next week I'll get ahold of the photos and be able to put up a few more photos.

On the top is a picture of Rio that Isac took from atop the Christ statue. It gives you a beautiful view of the part of Rio where we stayed. We actually stayed with a very rich lady who lived in an apartment right on the beach. We would be on the very left side of the beach in the photo. It was so awesome, from my bedroom I could lay down and see the beach and sugar loaf mountain, just amazing.

The other photo is Micah and I in the Botanical Gardens. Megan is a wedding photographer and didn't want to let such a beautiful background go to waste :) It was actually quite an experience to travel with three photographers. I'm not gonna lie, it can be exhausting at times. We had to go to every little place in the pursuit of that one perfect photo :) But in the end, we have a ton of beautiful photos so I really can't complain.

Rio here we come!

Next week is our Spring Break and we just bought tickets to Rio de Janeiro. It'll be Micah and I, his brother Isac, and our friend Megan, both of whom are also teaching here. We're planning on leaving early Sunday morning and will be returning on Saturday. Micah's family has some connections for people we can stay with so we won't have to pay for a hotel, which was a huge factor in being able to go.

There's so many tourist attractions in Rio that we plan to be quite busy during the week. Of course taking time out to enjoy some of the famous beaches Rio has to offer! I'll try to get some of our photos of the trip up after we return. But for now here's a picture of the famous Christ statue with Sugar Loaf Mountain in the background. Both are sights we plan on seeing firsthand.
