A Wednesday Wander: Brazil, in the Spirit of the World Cup

 A Wander in Brazil from December 2010

In the spirit of the World Cup, I’m mentally returning to Brazil.

Tiny Jesus

I’m squinting to discern a tiny, mountaintop figure looming in the distance.

Giant Jesus

One fairly significant hike later, I am merely a tiny figure at the base of the giant Christ the Redeemer.

Coconut Vendor

I’m wiggling my toes in the soft sand, while sipping the freshness of a straw poked into a green coconut.

Coconuts for Two

I’m basking in the warmth of water at sunset and savoring the sounds of songlike Portuguese.



I stayed for a while, but there is still so much more of you I need to see!

Until we meet again,



A Wednesday Wander is a way to revisit journeys past and work my way through my many photos and journals that might otherwise collect proverbial dust. Thanks for wandering with me!

    Have a listen to the music album Manaus Where Two Rivers Meet. “Midnight in Manaus” and “O Rio Amazonas” are my two favourites. Close your eyes and you are there.
