Walking on the beach in Rio de Janeiro

We are home safe in Austin!

After what has seemed like for forever traveling, we are finally home safe. We are both pretty tired and moving pretty slowly, but it is great to be home with the pups. They are definitely enjoying being home and playing with us.

I will update with some photos and stories soon.

Ben and Michelle’s Day in PA- More pics

Ben and Michelle’s Day in PA

We took a bus tour of the city on Thursday. It was a double decker bus and we sat on the top in the front row. Sadly, it was the coldest day since we had arrived, so it was a frigid ride around the city. It was interesting to see all of the parks, the soccer stadiums, the bay and many historic buildings. Following the bus tour we spent some time wandering around the central and busiest part of downtown. We did a little shopping and found a buffet with incredible variety for lunch. There are tons of buffets here. There is a brand of clothes here that is popular called Beagle Brand - so as you can guess, we had to go there for a few items! J

We meandered around a couple of museums. The museums here are free, so we just played “what do you think the title of this piece of artwork is?” while we tried to warm up from the cold. It was impressionists and modern art, so it was pretty funny to see what we could come up with.

In the late afternoon we went on a sunset cruise of the bay. Strangely enough, there was a film crew on board shooting a movie. It was neat to watch them and to interact with the crew and actors. Apparently the main actor is a famous Brazilian model, so I can guess you can say we had a brush with fame with our Brazilian celebratity sighting.

The cold evening ended at a local bar not far from out hotel with a couple of folks from Dell for a farewell happy hour. What a wonderful way to end the day.
