Hopi Hari-Themed

Hello, sweeties!

I know. It´s been a while!

I wanted to talk to you guys about some recent struggles/events I´ve been through… But let me spill the details from my trip before I can go “deeper”.

I woke up at 4:50 am sharp on Friday. We had a 6 am flight to catch, so we should be at the airport by 5:30 am… Too darn early, I know!

We were extremely excited, but extremely tired, too. We all tried to make happy faces, though:

Lelê was definetely awake.

FYI – “azul” means blue 🙂

Before boarding, we stopped at the cafeteria. Mom imagined they´d serve food at the plane, so we only bought some snacks.

I ordered a fresh orange juice – tasted awful. I don´t know why – maybe it wasn´t really fresh? I drank only about 1/4 of it :/

DSCF2214

Don´t worry – that´s not really Coke. It´s iced tea 😉

We took a bus to get into the airplane…

Lelê was definetely having fun 🙂

Then, we finally boarded.

Yup – Lelê slept.

The flight was quite pleasing – I didn´t even see the time passing. I finished reading a book I had to read for school (in french) and chatted with my sister Bruna for a while. No big deal!

Guess what they served us at the airplane?

Orange juice! How weird is that?

This one was a lot tastier, though – it has “Homemade Orange” written all over 🙂

Unfortunately, I only drank about a 1/4 – I had no time to finish, since we were landing! Oh, well.

We arrived at the hotel safely. We had the whole Continental Breakfast wating for us – we felt really welcomed 😉

Melon and pineapple chunks

Plus an apple

And a mug of plain yogurt with 1 1/2 tbsp of granola…

That tasted like crap. Eww. Lots of leftovers.

After breakfast, we were headed to Hopi Hari Park. YAY!

About the time we´ve spent at the park – I´m absolutely speechless. I´ll let the photos speak for themselves:

(Some of us) eventualy broke for lunch:

I did. Delicious italian bruschettas!

They didn´t stand a chance 😉

“Some of us” decided not to have a real meal, though:

Mainly sweet stuff.

Anyhow – it was an amazing experience. I even made a tattoo!

Leaving the “happiest place in Brazil”:

DSCF2358

One word: F-U-N.

We were pretty exhausted when we got back to the hotel. Lelê took a quick bath and slept for the whole night. I wanted to do the same, but Mom said I should have a real bath and decent food before calling it a day. We took advantage of the the hotel service 🙂

Grilled Chicken Breast with mustard sauce and steamed veggies (carrots, green beans, cauliflower)

DSC02672

Black bean “soup” (actually made with kidney beans – anyhow..)

DSC02673

And my beloved fresh OJ! Gotta have my Vitamin C somehow 😉

Absolutely delicious.

The rest of the day was spent lazily… We had an early night!

Oh, wow. That was pretty long!

I guess I´ll continue my recap later… Test week starts tomorrow!

Wish me luck, guys!

XOXO
