Luiz in the outdoors

Tomorrow Luiz leaves for a three day hike from Teresopolis to Petropolis with his friends from school.

These are two beautiful mountain towns just outside of Rio. It is a very eco-centered area - water falls, hiking trails, clean air...

He has purchased a VERY COOL sleeping bag (arms and legs stitched separately - like a moon suit!) and he is prepared with nutritional bars to keep his energy up for the long walk (including my - made with love - chocolate chip cookies).

We are hoping for the best, weather-wise. But he is preparing for less favorable conditions.
Should be great!

I will stay home and try to fix some of the difficulties associated with home ownership. hahaha

Sounds like fun! I'd like to go along :).
I have a good friend from Petropolis and last time we were in Rio we thought about taking a day trip there except that we didn't have enough time. But next trip we'll have to go for sure.
