I had to register at the Federal Police for temporary residence (since I'm staying more than 3 weeks here). Afterward, I went to Catussaba beach. I look chubbier because I have my suit under my clothes.. and I've been eating.. I dont know.. haha
I also went to a birthday party of my mom's friend, who was turning 80. A lot of cake! haha.
Then, I went back to Shopping Barra, hoping to snap some pictures of those balls in the water.. but they had a fashion show instead! (That occupied the space.) Next time! I took random pics of the mall. You will see American icons..
Victoria's Secret lotion which cost $9 in the States, cost R$73. $1 is R$1.8. That is around $40 to buy that, 4 times as expensive!! Well, that was the gift I got for my home-stay mom. I knew that luxury items were expensive, but I didn't know it was that expensive. And I got the lotion on sale for about $5.
And pics of my room..haha. A pic of all the medals my little bro won for swimming hanging on the wall.
I also went to Mercado Modelo, a souvenir one stop shop! You
Fruit Cocktails (non-alcoholic)
HAHa, at the party. No alcohol. Is it because they are Catholics?
have to haggle, and I do not like..haha, I always feel ripped-off. This is a souvenir shop for tourists, kinda like the ones in China. Underneath the Market is empty weird place... There is a speculation, from people who don't know what it is/was for, as to whether it is a place that they used to keep slaves before selling them.
And some random pics of food again. HAHa
