I wore this to the pool (though I did have the forethought to put in my contacts after I snapped this photo). The local city pools are such a great deal if you can get into a "pool family." Basically a bunch of us go in for group passes and spend about $15 each for unlimited access! I haven't had a lot of time to go yet this year. But I hope to correct that soon enough! I'm headed back today and maybe tomorrow. It should help me maintain my Maine tan. :)
The shirt is something I bought in Rio from an adorable little shop called Cecilia Brandao. It features an image of the street car that takes you from the steep hills of Santa Theresa, into downtown.
Chris bought a shirt there too, and he wore his right away.

The historic street car is the oldest trolley of its kind in all of South America. And it is an incredible bargain! So even though it feels a little dangerous when you are going across the very high aqueduct, it is definitely a worthwhile experience.
My khanga sarong scarf is also from Brazil. I am kind of dying to go back, if you can't tell. :)
