The Why

The whole nightmare process has taken over 4 7 months.  We made our decision to accept the opportunity to move to Brazil back in August May when my husband’s company found out he spoke Portuguese and told us they had an opportunity in Sao Paulo.  We told them we couldn’t leave until August, as I had just had a baby. That is all we knew.

The company didn’t know where the headquarters of the office would be for sure, and they couldn’t tell us where in Sao Paulo we would be living. Seriously, it’s like saying to someone, “You are moving to California.” California is a big state and depending on where you live the culture and surroundings vary quite a bit.  It looks like we are going to end up in Moema, far from the ocean.  That’ okay though, as we’ve been living in downtown LA, which is far from the ocean it seems on most days.

It’s kind of ironic that when we tell people we live in downtown LA, they ask how we handle all of the noise, pollution, lack of greenery, and most of all the traffic.  I have to laugh, as now that we’ve convinced family and friends that downtown LA is not so bad  we are moving to Sao Paulo, umpteen times worse in all of the above.

Downtown LA

Goodbye LA

I'm just another soul on the internet, posting random thoughts into the ether, because well I love stumbling on other peoples random thoughts, so I figured why not add mine to the mix too. I'm also the mom to two very funny little boys, and how can you not share that with everyone?
