The 2016 Olympics in Brazil, by the Lima Mirandas!

21 Aug

Greetings from Brasilia!

Well, the Olympic Games have come to Brazil… and our family has been very fortunate to have been part of these magnificent events.
Obviously, not the easiest task for our host country, but nevertheless, a pretty enjoyable experience.

How beautiful is the main host city, Rio de Janeiro? Here are a few shots I took from the “Cidade Maravilhosa”, while they were still getting ready to receive their guests:

We do live in Brasilia, the capital of the country. We normally go to Rio for work (believe that?). Between games, social events, cheering… our children showing up on global social media channels (okay, I’m bias, but isn’t this 8-year-old girl the best representation of the sports fans??), our diplofamily made sure everyone would have great life memories from the Rio2016 Olympics.

Go Team USA. Go Team Brazil!

      Thank you so much for stopping by, Cindy! And thank you for making the time to over the pictures and eave your comment! It means at to our family! We’re really trying to offer these kids a unique perception of life… trying to raise them I the right path, offering teachings and experiences… Hopefully, it will work, and urine little Lima Miranda kids will grow up to be fine, compassionate and worldly citizens… That’s the plan! Hugs to all of you over there!

      Thanks, Lucid Gypsy! Yes, we are working, traveling, reporting, taking care of the family… but found some time to attend the events! Husband went to Rio before/during the Opening Ceremonies. I stayed in Brasilia. Together we saw US basketball, volleyball, soccer, beach volleyball… and with the kids, some soccer – USA, MEXICO, SWEDEN, HONDURAS… it’s been very interesting, despite the crazy work schedule! 😚
