Photography: Peacock at lunch…

Had an extra friend join us for lunch today… 🤗 I guess the cuban sandwich, mafiamojito and pinacolada caught its eye and interest! 😎😉

Celebrating Mother’s Day in a very ‘Brazilian Cerrado’ style – hiking to the Itiquira Waterfalls!

It’s about a 2 hour drive from Brasilia, in order to get to the waterfall, but it is definitely worth the trek![as described by Giddyforpoints, on First2Board – thank you for sharing!

Map to Itiquira Falls

Local name: Salto do Itiquira
Location: Formosa, Brazil

The Itiquira Falls is a waterfall in Brazil. They are located 34 kilometers north of Formosa in the state of Goiás and 115 kilometers from Brasília on a paved road. The falls have a height of 168 meters, making them possibly the highest accessible waterfall in Brazil and the second highest overall. The falls are formed by the drop of the Itiquira River from the higher central plateau north of Formosa into the deep Paraná River valley. The waters are unpolluted and a bottling plant is located on the river above the falls. The area is a municipal park and is protected from development. There are tourist facilities outside the park, near the entrance. (source: Wikipedia)

Showing life in Brazil to our American family members!

The eldest member of our US-based Miranda Family, comes to Brasilia! Or, as the kids like to call him, their ‘Abuelito’ 🙂
Here, joining the kids for some well-deserved Easter Egg Hunt fun, organized for the US Embassy community:

Moving on, we’ve decided to join the Mirandas & the Nogueira Lima families: we all headed up to see the Brazilian part of the family in Fortaleza – taking the American ‘Abuelito’ to go visit the kids’ Brazilian uncles, aunts, cousing and grandparents? All aboard, heading to the Northeastern coast of Brazil for Easter Weekend! 🙂

Boys & Girls 😊 🛫 #travel #Family #Abuelito 🤗🌞🌴

Brazil & US Families together!

Back in Brasilia, how about start the weekend fun for our second guest, with some typical feijoada, caipirinhas and tropical fruit juices, while listening to traditional “chorinho” [samba] and Bossa Nova? All by the lake Paranoa side, watching the weekenders riding their boats, jet-skis and kayaks… Table for 16 people, please!

Mesa pra 16! 🍺🍻🍷 #tradicional #feijoada e #caipirinha #BierFassLago #Pontao #vemprobier

Gotta always save some [physical] energy for joining the US Embassy community during a friendly basketball mini-tournament, right?

Mid-afternoon sightseeing… ice-cream, anyone? Even better if it’s sold from a red vintage VW! 🙂

Considering making and keeping healthy friendships [in our case, our expat fellow friends] are the most important part of this ever-changing life, a few images from a night with friends, celebrating life, friendship, birthdays and good food! One of the pictures here is a ‘multi-collage’… guess which!

Fun with our #Dutch & #American #friends!🌙🎵🎶🎶 #holiday #games #drinks🎂🍰🍻🍺🍸🍷 #birthday #expatlife

What now?? Some family time back at our Lago Sul house, having fun with the little “resident monkeys”? 🙂 Priceless!

Our little resident monkeys 🐵🐒🐵🐒🐒 Impossível, sendo mãe e bióloga, nesta linda tarde de domingo, ver estas criaturinhas no quintal e não aproveitar o momento com os filhos! 🤗😎 The black-tufted #marmoset (Callithrix penicillata), also known as Mico-estrela in Portuguese, is a species of New World monkey that lives primarily in the Neo-tropical gallery forests of the Brazilian Central Plateau. O MicoEstrela, também conhecido sagui-de-tufos-pretos, ou somente sagui, sendo reconhecida como uma espécie de primata do Novo Mundo, pertencente ao gênero Callithrix, cuja origem é brasileira. #teachingmoment #backyard #mico #cerrado #faunadocerrado #Brasilia #Brazil #nature #wildlife #video #lagosul @atalantaworld @travel__blog

Brasilia, our current home, and a city planned to host the coutry’s federal government, is famous for [among other things!]:

a) its unique sky colors & the typical Cerrado vegetation

A heartfelt morning thought: our neighborhood in #Brasilia.😎🤗 #JKBridge Nossa vizinhança We're definitely gonna miss it…

b) its architectural lines and building structures, its religious/faith-based centers, bringing out a strange, yet passionate urban beauty:
