Hello, again! I hope you enjoyed getting to “visit” the Verdura in yesterdays post! But today, we are back in Rio de Janeiro! Rio is beautiful and exactly how I pictured it – with a few mountains, lots of natural forrest, and beautiful beaches. The scenery is right out of a movie. What I didn’t expect – how the locals dress. Yes, yes, I knew to expect a few Brazilian bikinis and lots of skin but I also expected to see most people dressed very casual and low key. Most of the places I travel, I am always the one who is over-dressed, so this trip I made it a mission to bring only casual attire. Most of the time I am in heels and the locals are in flats, staring at me like I am an alien. Here – reverse that. We go to local World Cup watching parties and the women are in dresses and heels and I am in cut-offs and t-shirts. Seriously, not what I expected! Since I bought this Zara dress I have been living in it – comfy, practical, and minimalist. So it was a no brainer when I threw it in the bag for Rio thinking it would be my “nice” dress if we go to dinner – scratch that – it is a super casual dress here! Can you believe it? Maybe it is just the World Cup crowd and the women are trying to impress but I am by far one of the most casually dressed people here! Note to self for next time!
