Flag of Brazil  , Rio de Janeiro,
Thursday, July 2, 2009

We all arrived safely, close to on time, and none the worse for wear!  Not much to report yet, but our first stay is at a relatively new, very tropical looking hotel on the outskirts of Petropolis, the city built for King Petro II for the summer months of the year - beautiful grounds surrounded by steep hillsides and tropical greenery - and lots of birds - bright yellow finches and bright green hummingbirds (the official colors of  Brazil!) - three very articulate, informed, and charming guide - a welcome-dinner tonight and our first concert tomorrow - more news to come! - Tom

Greetings from Taiwan!
Dear Tom and Jane,
That was a long trip, so glad to see you all arrived in good shape! Had to research the time difference between Brazil and Taiwan--we're 11 hours ahead of you! Your first stop sounds wonderful! I send best wishes to all for a great time!
Lots of love,
Alicia

Hey Bill and Lois from the LBI Paton's
Looks like a great trip! The Brazilian meat looks yummy. Nice group pic on the hike. We are all preparing for the 4th down the shore and the weather is perfect. Enjoy your trip and concerts - we wanted to see what you were up to. The Paton's
