Best dinner ever!

The smell of rice, beans and barbecue impregnates the place. It's a foreign restaurant called Fogo de Chao, where a person can have a meal like if it was in a restaurant in the middle of Rio de Janeiro on a friday night.
Entering the place one sees the huge pieces of meat spinning in the grill, it looks just right, juicy and well done. The salad bar has everything that makes you wanna be in Brazil, eggs, dice tomatos, corn and beans.
A mini "feijoada" (famous brazilian meal, made mainly of beans) is there too, hot and tasty, one must try some of that.
Sitting at the table the waitress brings come "pao de queijo"(cheese bread) as snacks, it's just perfect. Enjoying those little pieces of Brazil while sipping on a glass of Guarana (famous brazilian drink), it prepares one for the main meal.
The waitresses start arriving at the table one by one with different kinds of meat, pork, lamb and so on, they look just right and delicious. One can sit there and enjoy every single piece of meat, salad or other sides. It's hard to leave the place after such amazing experience, it's sure there will be a next time.

Brazilian Carnival

The main news in about Brazil right now is the CARNAVAL (CARNIVAL). It's a huge celebration around the country. Businesses and school are close for almost a whole week, parties don't stop, and you can watch the parades with their huge cars and many dancers. Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Salvador are the cities with the biggest celebrations. World celebrities are becoming a fan of this party, like Madonna that has been seen there many times over the years.
As a brazilian myself, i can't help but miss not being able to be there because it's an amazing experience and a lot of fun!
If you are a fan of big celebrations, Brazilian Carnaval is a must!

Upcoming Season

Tennis season is around the corner! So exciting! The men and lady tigers are going to face their first challenge of the season. It's going to be interesting to see how the team does since the weather has not allowed proper conditions for practice and the team might still be a little rusty on the edges but nothing that will stop the tigers to try their best! I will update the results when possible! =)

Busy Wednesday

Newspaper Reporting class and a new assignment. It might keep me a little busy but I might get it done. Probably not today though... wednesday is chaotic and I have no free time... gotta do some "exciting" statistics hw, practice and work later today... I can't wait til saturday! It's the first match of my last season! Kinda bitter sweet feeling because I am not sure I am ready to leave the team and graduate! :S
