Sam had his puzzles out this morning, so we decided to take a photo of all the countries where he has lived.
We were discussing the shape of Brasil (Brazil), and how it's really shaped like a mini South America. It's a little bumpier on top, and not as long, but very similar. Washington State seems to have gone missing. It's around somewhere - the puzzle was complete when we unpacked everything six weeks ago. Oh, Washington, where are you???
There are many places we'd like to visit while we're here. First up will be Argentina during the boys' winter break, and the list is growing daily for places within the borders of Brasil: Floronopolis, Rio, Curitiba, some town in the southern-most state of Rio Grande do Sul. We hear the state of Minas Gerais has the best food (better than here?!), and I haven't even begun to research any place in the Nordeste or near the rainforests in Amazonas. Since we only made it to three provinces (any we barely squeeked in that last one) while we lived in Canada, I'm sure we won't see everything we would like down here, but we'll try!
