Hotel Pictures

I had a couple questions about our hotel room (you know, since we have to live here a month or so!) They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so maybe I can keep this more concise by posting pictures. We are actually in a 1 bedroom suite, so we have a living room with mini-kitchen and then a separate bedroom. I also included a shot of the pool from our balcony . . . one of my favorite places to reside as of this morning. :) The living in a hotel thing isn't all that bad right now anyway. I am sort of enjoying having someone else make my bed in the mornings and having to send out our laundry. (Eric says I better enjoy it while I've got it, and not get too used to it! hehe)
Last night we ran into one of those cultural differences things when we went out for supper. Eric got home from work about 6:15 and after catching up on each others' day, we decided we would head out and find somewhere to eat. Since we hadn't done it yet on this trip, we thought we'd go out to a churrascaria and eat good. The front desk suggested Ambrosio's Grill and gave us directions (in English) so we headed that way. We arrived at about 7:00 - prime supper time, right?? Well, even though the front door was open, the place didn't look open for business yet so we walked to a small pub across the street and decided to have a drink first. At 7:30 our stomachs couldn't wait any longer, so we went on over to Ambrosio's. The second we walked in the door about 20 guys go jumping up and running around the restaurant. They were open . . . they just weren't expecting any customers so early in the evening! Eric and enjoyed a wonderful meal while we were out numbered by the staff about 10-1. When we left at 9:00 pm, people were just starting to arrive for supper. My only observation: if they offered early bird specials, Eric and I would have a great time with the over 60 crowd! LOL
P.S. On a side note, many of you know (or know of) my dear friend Amanda who was pregnant with twins. She was due November 28, but she gave birth to James and Audrey last Tuesday, October 3! Both babies and Mommy are getting stronger each day, but the babies are going to have a long road ahead of them while their little bodies continue to develop outside of the womb. Amanda and Jon along with their new bundles of joy have been in my prayers constantly and I know that they would appreciate an interest in yours.

Is there any truth to the rumor that Joe Foster can still reach out and touch you even in Brazil? LOL

My sources (aka my husband) say yes . . . you can never escape Joe Foster . . . not even half way around the world! ;)
