Saturday June 8th: A Taste of Brazil

After the team was able to get a good long nights sleep it was so nice
waking up to a delicious breakfast at the hotel. The continental
breakfasts in the US are no comparison to what kind of breakfast they
have here! Fresh cut mango, watermelon, pineapple, and other fresh
fruits, and so many different pastries, slices of meats and cheeses.
All so delicious. Fresh squeezed orange juice and coffee that will
definitely keep you on your feet.
After meeting around noon we then started our day driving along the
numerous Brazilian beaches Copacabana, Ipanema, Barra to the next stop
which was lunch- at this amazing buffet Resaturante Lokau. This place
is unbelievable. You go fill your plate up with food then they come
around with more food, sushi, grilled pineapple, pizzas, pastas, and
there so much more. Just when we thought our stomachs couldn't hold
any more they started bringing around dessert pizzas! Who can say no
to those. Well we found room that's for sure.
After getting a couple minutes to walk on the beautiful sand at the Recreio
beach and later seeing the incredible artwork at the hippi feira, we
made one more stop to grab a bite to eat. It was at a walk up bakery
where many local Brazilians stop by to grab ham and cheese sandwiches,
fried chicken pastries, and fresh juices.

Brazil has a lot of wonderful things that we are enjoying! After this full day of eating we were able to go back to the hotel and get a good night's rest in preparation for our day of worship with the church tomorrow.
