I Made It!

Just a quick post to let everyone know that I got here OK! The plane ride was really uneventful, and I managed to get through the airport just fine. Claudia and Paulo, the parents of the family I am staying with, picked me up from the airport, and Claudia and I came straight to their apartment -- on the way I got a glimpse of the city! After a little nap I am going to walk down to the Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, I think -- Claudia says, "it is easy." I hope so! First, though, I have to muster up the guts to use portuguese to ask for some lunch -- I'm pretty much terrified, and am considering starvation as an alternative!

*update: my portuguese is horrible and the attempt to ask about lunch resulted in a phone call so someone could translate for us. wahwah!
