Here is another shot from that monument with a cool bridge in the background.
We are standing in an area where the President of Brasil makes speeches and they have special ceremonies. The structure has great acoustics and sound travels pretty far. We tested it out by clapping, whistling and shouting. I should´ve gotten a picture of the whole building, it is pretty cool looking.
We are standing in front of our house here in Brasilia. His parents are living here and have done a great job helping us complete it. Jean started building it before he moved to the U.S. And below is a picture of the room we are staying in.I love being here and have really enjoyed getting to know Jean´s family and friends. Everyone has been so kind to me and we have had a great time laughing, talking and translating and eating good food! =) Brasilia is a beautiful place and it is fun to get the grand tour from Jean and his family. I feel like I am learning a lot of Portuguese, but know I have a long way to go. Anyway, I will finish this post but try to put more up often. We send our love from the southern hemisphere and summer weather! =) (The temperature has ranged from 25 degrees Celcius to 32 degrees and is humid!)
