Today I went to horse eventing.  It was not very eventful, though.  I certainly thought I was in for a bit more excitement than simply changes gaits, leads, and directions.  Beautiful animals in any case.  Most of the riders were from the US, Canada, ... Read more >

a quick update

Thursday, 19 Jul 2007 | Views [581]

Watched US men lose in beach volleyball today.  Yeah, the crowd was definitely against us.  I think the only team that gets boo-ed more than the US is Argentina; Brazil and Argentina are not the best of friends.  Actually, the US women´s soccer team ... Read more >

The week in the jungle was superb.  There is a unique set-up that allows you to open your mind and soothe your soul at the same time.  A difficult combination, and yet this place achieves such results with hardly any effort at all.  It is a little piece ... Read more >

The people of Brazil are amazing to me.  They make this country very enjoyable, and it has been better and better the more people that I meet.  They are friendly and helpful, and their command of the English language still astounds me.  Many of the people ... Read more >

So, apparently people want details concerning the last post.  It´s not that exciting - which is partly why it was so stupid.  The language deal came up at the airport.  Being a large group always takes long, and we were running late for our scheduled ... Read more >
