MAKING FRIENDS IN RIO

One of the objectives of this trip has been for Lili to engage with children around the world and maybe even make new friends. In Rio this took off right away as we are staying in a little co-op and there happens to be a couple of girls around Lili's age in the compound. So probably on day two we met Isabela, who is now Lili's best friend here.

It is very cool to see how well th kids play even though they have no common language. Isabela knows a tiny bit of English and Lili has been learning the odd word of a Portuguese. And somehow it all works just perfectly. 

This photo is from today - it has Lili, Melinda, Isabela and Cecilia. And there were two dogs running around: Michael Jackson (Isabela's dog - under the table) and Tobique (Melinda's dog - in Lili's arms).

Marina (R) and family will be moving out of Rio tomorrow. We are glad we met her and hope to see her again - maybe in Canada one day!
