Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Brazilian Winter

Exactly one week into my vacation in Brazil and I am finally experiencing my first day of nothing. I just spent an hour cleaning my keyboard with a toothpick and a q-tip. Here is an excerpt:

Kristin is fully occupied nursing a hangover that she acquired drinking caipirinhas, a fruity drink (fruity in taste, not sexual preference).

I call this piece Kristin vs. Caipirinhas


Thus far, every day has been pleasantly jam-packed with tourist duties assigned by my Father with his carefully crafted itinterary.

Yesterday, we took a pair of cable-cars to the top of Sugarloaf mountain where you can enjoy a mind-blowing view of Rio de Janeiro.


While we were atop Sugarloaf, I borrowed my Father’s tricked-out Panasonic still camera, which I discovered takes some pretty awesome photos.

Here is my first endeavour into wildlife photography (click for larger pictures)…



Right now it’s Winter in Brazil, which doesn’t neccessarily matter because it’s still 25 degrees outside. Everyone walks around with sweaters and looks at us like we’re retarded as we walk to the beach. The only downside is that it gets dark around 5:30pm, and the streets of Rio after dark are nowhere for a gringo to be.

That’s about all for now, I’ve been sitting at the computer for about 2 hours now, and I am in need of some fresh air. Expect a video podcast from myself later on this week.

For now, check out the new trailer for Parker Porkham Supernatural Detective (directed by Sam Fisher) below…

Tchau gringos.
