I am tired. My back is all scratched up. My feet are torn up. I’ve got a knot on my forehead and a bruised hip. My shoulders and back are way sunburned (despite massive multiple applications of sunscreen).
And yet, I’m happy, cause we just spent day two of our “Rio Carnaval Stay-cation 2009” at “Rio Water Planet…” Supposedly Latin America’s largest water-park, with rides such as the “Crazy Slides,” “the Wild River,” and “the Free-fall”, among others… I managed to nearly fly off the “free-fall” slide, took out a life guard and random girl on the savage river innertube ride, was involved in a 9 innertube pile up in a tunnel, and managed to flip out of the tube on a high curve, barely avoiding a mini-pile up of my own… All in all, a great day of carnaval.
Now it’s time to put on lotion for the sunburn, alcohol in the ears, and turn the AC on high!
Hooray for water parks, slides, and Carnaval!
