16 hours later…and I’ve arrived in Rio! I’m feeling a bit of everything – a little jet lagged but mostly excited, nervous and curious to see what’s in store for me!
My flight took me from Toronto, to Atlanta, to Rio. Great fact, Brazil has the most generous allowances of luggage of any country. Every passenger gets 2 pieces of luggage to check! If I had known…my shoe selection would have been exponentially larger. But considering I brought a bag so big I can basically fit inside it, it’s probably for the best.
Anjelica and Marcos, two people who work with Rede Asta, were at the airport to pick me up! So great to see friendly faces to take me to my hotel where I’ll be staying.
I’ve had a nap and now I’m about to head to experience a real life Bossanova performance with the Rede Asta team. Can’t wait to meet everyone and get my first taste of Brazilian culture.
Stay tuned to hear more about the show!
