Open house in Rio

Our friends Dora and Serjão have just finished remodeling their new apartment on the ground floor of Dora’s sister’s one hundred year old house. For the past several months they have been overseeing workers tearing out floors and installing new tile, switching out old plumbing for new, walling up old doorways, upgrading electrical wires and bringing in new lights and bathroom fixtures.

[Look at that fabulous huge clay pot!]

Dora is brilliant at combining colors and painting textured walls. She spent years living in Mexico (for work – she’s a nuclear physicist) which clearly shows through in her color choices.

So naturally – it was time for a party to celebrate their moving in!

Everyone was so excited we arrived at 10:30 in the morning. Let the party begin.
Even the Brazilian nuclear physicist has a little magic/luck icon tucked in her house to keep the evil spirits away (or to call in the good spirits).
It was after 11:00 p.m. by the time we packed up and left our friends to get some rest. Gotta love those 12 hour parties!
