Happy Birthday to me!!!! This trip to Rio was written in the stars. I'm a teacher with a fixed school year that just so happens to have a break during February. I just so happened to find affordable plane tickets from Korea to Brasil. Due to the coronavirus, many schools requested that teachers vacationing in Asian countries cancel their trips ...but I chose to leave Asia so I wasn't affected. Carnaval just so happened to take place at the end of February this year with Fat Tuesday/Mardi Gras, a terca-feira de Carnaval, falling right on my b day, February 25th.
Now, there were a lot of misshaps during this trip. I left my phone at the airport in NYC during a layover, my back up phone was stolen during a bloco, I lost my voice, etc...
But I'm so grateful to celebrate the day of my birth in one of my favorite cities in the world which just so happens to be celebrating it's biggest holiday.
This trip was a gift specially handwrapped by God. I'm so grateful and I feel romanced by the universe.
