CULTURE SHOCK–ALREADY?!?

5/27/12

Sunday morning, in the middle of a three day weekend, and I wake up in a panic.  I  feel like I am not doing things right to prepare my time in Rio. I still have six weeks before I depart for Brazil.  But, I realize I’m trying to do all this trip planning on my own, and I just cannot do it all.

I realize–and not too late, since I still have over a month before I travel–I need a point person in Rio that can set things up for me on the other end to help me make appropriate arrangements that I cannot do from here. They can be sure all is ready for me when I get there–i.e., have a power wheel chair rented and waiting for me, as well as to assist in arranging an accessible place for me to stay near IBEU, my program location.

Although I have feelers out I may not hear back until Tuesday because of the long holiday weekend.  I must be patient, I know.

Fique tranquila, Guida!  Stay calm, woman!!
