Caipirinhas - Come to Mama!
After twisting Brian's arm and finally picking lovely Brazil as the destination for our much-needed vacation, then resolving - to the best of my ability - a debacle with the tickets (never book anything on multiple airlines, it's inevitably going to be a clusterfrack), and almost forgetting to get our tourist visas (duh!), I'm ecstatic to say at last...Brasil, nos vimos!
Worth a note, the Brazilian Consulate was amazingly efficient and the clerks downright NICE compared to their American counterparts who have a knack being generally mean, condescending, and maliciously unhelpful. And that is if you are an American citizen. When you're not, it's only worse.
