Welcome to Whitney's Page

Whitney, 2011
Laguna Cuicocha, high in the Ecuadoran Andes under the beautiful sun! Our camping spot was at the highest point on the ridge, at the left of the photo.

Ao final

Game day! I am not yet sure of my plans for watching the World Cup final - likely just find a bar. Copacabana is packed with chanting Argentinians, which is fun and spirited, but I do not imagine I will want to join the masses at the Fifa FanFest on the beach. Too much for me.

At the end of my Brazil visit. Kind of crazy. In some ways, I can't believe I'm already at the end of the trip, and in others, I feel like I've been here for a long time!

Things I will miss [and will be happy to return to when I come back]:
  • acai on every corner
  • queijo minas (a wonderful type of cheese)
  • tapioca - not what we think is tapioca; its a crepe-type dish popular in the northeast, and it's delicious
  • the portuguese language
Things I will not miss:
  • the absurdly, inexplicably slow lines at supermarkets (in which I have written this entire post)
  • people on their phones when you're sitting with them at a restaurant

Son in the sky

I hung out with Jesus today. When I arrived at his feet, he was nowhere to be seen. Nor was the city. Everything was socked in by gray. Fortunately, I was with friends from Recife, so we kicked it and waited for Christ to return. And behold! He emerged!
