More on Brazil

Hello Again,
Here is a photo of me and my brother at a mountain called Maria Comprida (Long Mary). You see why it's called Long Mary because it slopes down, on the side that I was on, therefore earning its name.

Geo Game

I did a previous post ot Christmas Ideas. This is what I got!!

It's a game called Geo Derby. You race around a track answering questions. There is a map if you need it:)

I think it is really Great!!!


I am back from Rio de Janeiro!

Hey guys. I just got back from some of the best six weeks of my life.
Above is a map of the state of Rio de Janeiro. I was in the city of Petropolis, also known as the Imperial City. This particular area of Brazil is very mountainous and has very curvy. Almost everyone got carsick on the way there and on the way back. We did go to the beach once, and it was pretty cool.

I will report on my trip again.
