Beautiful Búzios

Our very first day in Brazil, we landed in Rio de Janeiro around 9:30 am. We were picked up at the airport shortly after, and arrived at Joe's apartment to meet his friend Brad. Brad decided the best thing for us to do on our first day is check out a local Cafe (it soon became Catie and mine's favorite breakfast spot) and take us up to see an amazing view of the city from Pão de Açúcar, in English it's known as Sugarloaf Mountain. 
Some photos from our view:

Our first weekend in Brazil, was spent at a beautiful house in Búzios with some of Joe's co-workers and friends! Words cannot explain how wonderful the beaches were and how charming the house was we rented... some photos from the weekend:
