Nov 3-4 Posting by Tram, Aiden and Emaline

We made it safely to Brazil! We had a great flight and a wonderful first day. We took in a soccer match at MaracanĂ£ Stadium followed by great meal back near the hotel.  Then we slept well in our hotel located in Copacabana.


Today (Nov 4) we went to see Christ the Redeemer which is one of the seven world wonders. It's located at the top of the mountains in Rio de Janeiro. The statue of Jesus has his arms open which can symbolize many things such as welcoming. We were able to see all of the city from the top, and the differences between the north and the south, rich and poor.  To get there, we drove on a very windy road and climbed steps to get up. Up there the clouds were rolling off the statue and it was beautiful.






















After lunch, we headed over to the national museum of Brazil in which we met two Brazilian high school students who we got to interact with and get to know. We listened to our guide Javier explain the history of Brazil before roaming round the museum seeing what the museum contains. We saw paintings, artifacts from indigenous people and were able to learn more about Brazil's history.






Dinner was exquisite, the pasta with chicken was so divine. GuaranĂ¡ is a Brazilian fruit that is then used for the guaranĂ¡ soda which is magnificent. For dessert we indulged in some amazing chocolate cake which was very rich and creamy rather than cake-like. It was a highlight of the meal itself.
