I told you before that Murphy will be my travel partner. First she made me got cold at last day of Istanbul. Then delayed my Sao Paolo flight. I was planning to land at 7pm to Sao Paulo and depart to Rio at 9.40pm without connection. But 1 hour delay made me nervous. Only good part of the flight was my cousin’s girl friend was cabin crew. So I was not technically alone. She even offered me to stay at Sao Paolo with her but I just want to g oto Rio immediately.
After 15 hours we finally landed. Somehow I managed to jump over the first line of passport control. If I could took my baggage immediately I would have caught the flight. However I waited about 40 minutes to get my baggage! I ran to check in desk but it was closed with just 5 minutes. They offered to reschedule the ticket but next flight was for tomorrow and all seats were full because of the carnival. Turkish Airlines sent me to TAM airlines they sent me to another else and else. I was already sick, now I became desperate. I cried for availble seat for next morning. Someone eventually saw how desperate I am and arranged a seat. But now there was another problem. Where am I gonna stay? I tried to call my cousin’s girl friend but couldn’t reach her. After few hours I learned that she has already gone to hotel which is 1.5 hours distance away. So I became desperate again. My Rotaractors friends who are waiting to pick me up from Rio solved my problem and arranged their another Rotaractor friend’s house which is close to Guarulhos Airport. Last year also I stayed in Sao Paolo just to spend the night but even I arranged the hotel in advance it turned out to be a disaster. So I didn’t want to take that risk and went to those friends’ house.
Taxi driver was another adventure. He had a full functional navigation system but no brain. It took half an hour to get 10km. First he tried to drop me at a terrible place. I realised that it coudn’t be the house. Even if it was, I would never stay there. Finally he talked with the host on phone and took me to right place. House was very nice. The couple who have no idea about me accepted a vagabond girl at midnight. I appreciated it. I understand that there is a trustable connection between Rotaractors whether you know them or not. I took a good sleep and next morning Rodrigo left met o airport.
Finally I am in Rio de Janerio now. Fabio and Brenda picked me up from the airport and took met o house at Vila Isabel(close to Maracana). It is a calm area with 70+ year old habitant profile. As long as it is safe no problem for me. House is cute. Even the cat is calm. I can like her may be but without touching. Weather is closed but hot. The worst type of weather. If it is closed it should be cold. I can’t adopt this tropical climate. I already got cold and came here. Now I can’t understand if I have fever or it is just the hot weather. Hope sun goes out and I can taste the real ocean instead of ocean spray I use for my nose. Because of sickness, Murphy and weather I couldn’t get the expected energy. But tomorrow carnival starts and we are going to beach. I wish Murphy can fuck off and I can enjoy the city healthy and happy.
