When we arrived to our hotel in Sau Paulo, we had so much fun checking out the modern Murombi rooms and the amenities we had. We were tired, exhausted and gross feeling from the lack of showers. But we got a great Brazilian/Italian meal and I had a few beers for about 30 Brazilian.

We wandered around this safe World Trade Center for a while and took a bunch of pictures.

The weather outside was absolutely fantastic with zero humidity and great sunshine.

We took a two hour nap and eventually woke up seeking more food, but to no avail we could not find anything open in the WTC. So we had to pay about 100 bucks to eat inside the Hilton. It was decent food. But absolutely fantastic service and totally relaxing atmosphere.

That night at about Midnight we overheard a noise coming from a wedding down below and it started right at midnight. We were a bit worried that in Brazil, the weddings start at midnight and last all night with that racket, but it eventually ended. The building . . . Read More..

We miserably woke up at 7:30 ish and it was dark and we didn't want to meet up for our early excursion to the Sugar loaf Mountain. The ship had you meet in the large Theater to get your assigned cattle bus number for your stereotypical expensive drive through town to get your candid smiley photo in front of the sights.. smell any pessimism and sarcasm here?

I know it is a safe excursion for sure. But I had my doubts you get what you pay for with some of these. Most of the people paid for the "Best of Rio", that hit up the Corcovado (Christ The Redeemer Statue), The Sugar Loaf View as well as got a Brazillian lunch and tour of the Cathedral.

Susan and our tour group first got to the Cathedral fully modern and made of concrete and it was so huge and apparently it holds like 5000 people or more. It was pyramid shaped and had the most beautiful stained glass and a huge cross at the top. I took some pictures and videos of this and took a picture of our new friends from New . . . Read More..

We had two days at sea and we spent a lot of time relaxing by the pool and other things.

I played a texsas holdem tournament and sadly I lost when I called someone with AA. God I was stupid to call his betting pattern. I should have known better.

Oh well

Things got worse after that because the waves got really bad and made Susan and I queasy.

Susan dry cleaned her dress for the formal night with the Captain and even started to get ready and I was in bed still in the fetal position because of the motion of the boat.

She also began to feel really dizzy and 20 minutes before we had to be somewhere I got up and said we arent going because I felt too dizzy. We got a little scared because we certainly didnt want the whole cruise to be sick.

But we ordered room service and I got up to get the door. The server didnt look well at all and was stumbling with our stuff in our room and nearly tripped and fell on Susan's suitcase and I recovered it and set it down.

Two seconds later I was sea . . . Read More..

Our day started off early for our city tour of Buenos Aires Argentina. Getting on the bus, we had the most amazing tour guides who seemed to be really relaxed and less rushed than at Rio De Janiero.

Our first stop on this romantic day was the first cemetery in the city.

It was one of the most unique cemeteries I have ever seen and Evita was buried there. We took many photos of various sarcophagi and it was interesting because the caskets were in plain view in a few of them.

We had to wait in line to see Evita's family grave. But Evita herself was buried underground so that she may truly rest in peace.

There was a huge tree that I got a picture of outside of the graveyard and there were many professional dog walkers hanging out there with 4 to 7 dogs they were watching.

Next Susan and I went to the town center with the familiar pink government building of which the president helicopters into each day to work on time.

Right around the corner there was an amazing . . . Read More..

The day after my marriage was also a very big day, for Susan and I planned on packing up all her stuff in Troy into the parked truck and planned on leaving that night to stop somewhere in Ohio that night.

In the morning, our hotel was a wreck from all the gathering and getting ready that all the bridesmaids needed to get done the previous day. Susan and I dreaded cleaning all this up, but it wasn't as bad as I thought.

We did kind of get freaked out from this noise that sounded like someone was breaking into our hotel though. It sounded like someone was opening and closing our door. It was extremely loud and you could tell it was happening in the next room. After getting up a few times investigating, I found that it was the wind that was opening up our balcony door and pushing it inward to make that noise.

Susan and I then ordered our first meal as husband and wife and it was a delicious eggs Benedict.

Later it took a few hours to pack up all our belongings into my brother and . . . Read More..
