Well it’s Friday, and in days gone past that would have meant a guaranteed post here at Eat Rio. Then along came the World Cup and a deluge of food tours and my whole writing/posting routine got messed up.
So now that the World Cup is over, things should be getting back to normal, right?
Well, not quite yet. Mrs Eat Rio and I have been working 7 days/week for the last 3 months, so we are both completely exhausted. A few weeks ago we decided to book ourselves a holiday to Mexico so we can get away from everything and fully unwind.
I visited Mexico back in 2010 and absolutely loved it. For Mrs Eat Rio it will be her first time in the land of tequila, mole and chilaquiles (we plan to indulge in all 3 of those items, plus much, much more).
Of course I’ll be indulging in some serious relaxation, but I will also be taking my camera with a view to record my experiences and perhaps draw some parallels and contrasts between Mexico and Brazil. And when I get back, things will get back to normal (promise!).
Thanks for bearing with me over the last few months – it’s actually been a really successful World Cup here at Eat Rio, but the kind of hard work required during the tournament didn’t leave much time for anything else.
I know I’ve been posting a lot of hummingbird photos on the Eat Rio Facebook page recently, but I wanted to leave you with one more. This is my favourite shot of the lot as I finally managed to get one of these zippy fellows in focus and lit up in the sunlight. I’ll be back in early August!
