I arrived to the airport, and unfortunately my flight was cancelled. Luckily the airline got me on another flight, but it left much later. Flights from Floripa to Rio are very affordable. The most expensive flights to Rio round trip were $90. I find that to be quite a deal! I had a great weekend in Rio spending time with close friends there. There were Brazilian students who studied at my university. They went through a program called Ciencas Sim Fronteiras (Science Without Borders). I've been able to see most of them since they live in Rio de Janeiro. We went on a hike calle Trilha de Urca, and I loved it. The hike was up a mountain, and although it was kind of cold outside, we began to get sweaty real quick while going up. The forest was dense and there were cool rocks that helped while going up. It took about 45 minutes, and we stopped in between to drink water and eat some kit kats I brought. At the end of it we saw a gorgeous view of Rio. It was cloudy out, but still a lovely sight.
I still want to explore more of Floripa and Brazil while I'm here. Each city is its own world, and somehow I want to see and experience every part of each city I'm in!
