Me & parents discovering Brazil (a bunch of photos)| Eu e meus pais descobrindo o Brasil (um monte de fotos)

Hello people! I have finally collected all photos, edited them and uploaded them (which takes a lot of time with the slow internet!). These are photos from the 1½ week my parents visited me in Brazil. I had been waiting for this since I moved here in July 2014, so it was absolutely awesome.

A Finn in Rio de Janeiro, on the way home | Um finlandês no Rio, viajando para casa

Hi everybody! I hope you have a good Christmas holiday with whoever or wherever you are! Here comes a select collection of all photos from when I was in Rio, just before returning to The Netherlands.

>35h en route and still alive

Olá todo mundo! Btw, “todo mundo” (“everybody”) literally means “entire world”, so hello world.

As you may have noticed by now I have arrived. In fact, I arrived two days ago already (28th), but I’ve been quite busy catching up with sleep and getting to know my surroundings. Yesterday I toured the enormous UFV campus, saw llamas, and got shouted at by a street artist. But let’s backtrack to my travel adventures!

En route

So today is finally the day. I’m currently sitting in the airport lounge at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, having just parted with my dad who’s also flying today, but to Ghana. I’m now looking at almost 24h en route, from Amsterdam to Rome with KLM, where I transfer to Alitalia that flies to Rio de Janeiro. Then I have quite a long bus ride ahead to get to Viçosa. And now for some photo spamming:
