Changed trying to go out @ 11pm was not a success specialty on Sunday most places were empty concierge sent me to echo cafe well a cigar smoking joint with all the Mexican servers u can get.. aside from the few people that were dining..place was not my type at all. After buying Cuban cigars for my friend in SA who asked I took a u turn and left with a taxi for the next place another concierge recommended shenanigans..from the name I was weary anyway..sounded like the place I knew in Berkely CA and so it was worse taxi thought I was going to go out when I told him the next place is to be Ceasar Park went out and lived in memory of 9yrs how life is I thought bar was empty exchanged convers with front desk about hotel being owned by American company news to me was his response and then

I saw everyone's eye on me they seem all handsome carioca men openly flirting loved it.. I thought os wanting to get to know everyone being in the middle also was helpful as I started talking left & right even across one good looks eccod where I was from my answer 'planet earth' heard the laughter around the table..ok and u I asked bk..chile he siad and so is my friend here..sorry about the news on Pinoche I said read few days ago.

Airport arrive on time 4 change but hey this is Rio flight was delayed oh no it is 40 minues now..everyone was getting aprehensive specialy me when I had to catch a connecting flight to SA from SP intl airport.
flight to sp was good after snaks we arrived at sp airport certaony a difference in quality I mean vs rio. Got to the ted & white taxi to which my hotel in sp has instructed me to take if I want to add bill on my hotel account which was yet to be settled with me when I get back. Taxi took more reals than before 44 Vs 30 to 40 which is a big diff if u ask me and I could swear I read the meter to be 18 when I was traveling to rio. Well I started justifying z Brasil must be on taxi economy. I complained about the whole bill and lack of clarity in comm skills w everyone they sent me an Asian supervisor whoresolved some of the issues for . Well not from monetary but holistic solutions. Thanked her genouenly and said good bye to all and left. B can't help but to think that the front desk people are saying gey het high maontejance ass out of here. Off it was me and the taxi driver who speakes little english and had 'music international' in his car. I was seeing as we stopped for traffic in our 1 hr drive to airoort a lot of shope w bridal gown displays showing me there is still a fantasy in Brazil as well of an old fashioned wedding..how nice I say almost being sure it would be magic 4 me to gobthru this...which reflects much of what I always think about marriage in 50 years a story of fairytell belonging in the musium cultural. In fact thatbis what I think of religion which isbnot a subject of this memoria. I am always amazed to also see the town populated with the over larger than life billboards of adds usuallydisaying beautiful Brazilian girls - the marketing mogules of products localv& inter
