That’s Hi in Brazil
I’m settling in, loving the new lifestyle. I’m eating really healthy food, and running along the footpath along the beach in the mornings. While not an ‘untouched’ beach (it IS a city beach) it’s still beautiful and exciting, and bit like the Gold Coast I’d imagine.
I do feel decidedly pale running along, people have naturally dark complexions or they are black, and all have tans to boot. Interesting to watch the shop and sales people prepare themselves for the day, carting coconuts here and there, popping them in refrigerators etc. The mountains, esp the sugar loaf, make for a pretty backdrop too.
Still jet lagged. Came wide awake after just 4 hours sleep last night at 2am, and tossed till 4 when I decided to read a book on my laptop. Went to the local supermarket at 5.30, prices there are less than that of Australia, but not dirt cheap either.
Work wise, while it’s a little curious for the other people staying in my room, I’ve got a pretty nice setup and I’m enjoying being on the plasq ‘dev time’ (at least when I’m not napping in the afternoon due to jet lag!) and I already feel more productive for it.
I just hope I don’t get sick of fruit! It’s cheap, fresh and abundant. Oh and I need to check the nutritional information for coconut water, I don’t want to be sucking down too many calories each day!!
I’m feeling very close to nature, and I haven’t had coffee in 3 days!
