A Day in the Park

Posted by Megan Roney on Monday, July 25, 2011, In : Sight Seeing 

After spending the majority of the past week confined to either the hotel or the theatre across the street, Jarred and I ventured out on our first official day off to see a bit more of Sao Paulo, Brazil.  We didn’t want to wander too far, as we were still feeling the effects of last night’s round of caipirinhas, Brazil’s official cocktail made with lime juice, sugar and a Brazilian distilled liquor called cachaca. 


 

Luckily about five or six blocks from our hotel we stumbled upon D...

Sao Paulo Traffic

Posted by Megan Roney on Tuesday, July 12, 2011, In : Culture 
After much anticipation, yet relative ease, I've made my way to Sao Paulo, Brazil.  After a somewhat long wait in the customs line, I wearily wobbled towards the luggage carousel, and I'm sure the Avianca attendant standing near the belt instinctively knew I was in need of help.  He asked to see my baggage claim ticket and his brow instantly furrowed as he read aloud "American Airlines".

As it turns out, I did have to resort to high school Espanol in transit today.  My plane buddy for my flight to Bogota, Columbia was a sweet, little old lady who wanted to chat, regardless of my inability to form complete sentences in Spanish and her inability to understand anything beyond "American".  

I learned she was from a canyon somewhere near Bogota with the held of the maps in the inflight magazine.  I managed to communicate that I'd flown from Colorado to Miami and was heading to Sao ...

On the Road Again

Posted by Megan Roney on Tuesday, July 12, 2011, In : In Flight Stories 
A cold shower to wake me up, last minute toiletries packed in my carry on, peanut butter toast carried in the car and gobbled up one hour after taking my Malaria pill, all before the sun peaks over the endless ridges of the Rocky Mountains.  

It's another day at work for me and I can't believe how lucky I am.  Off to Brazil to begin a tour with Mickey's Magic Show.  The rest of the cast is by now hopefully in the hotel in Sao Paulo, but because of bad weather in Denver two nights ago, I've bee...

About Me


Megan After a while of traveling in foreign countries, you begin to realize that it's not just your luggage that can get lost. When you don't speak the language, you loose your ability to speak. If you can't decipher the written word, you loose your ability to read. And if you can't read the signs to know where you're going, you yourself can get lost. It can be a bit overwhelming, and at times humiliating, but I'm sure even Odysseus experienced frustration on his adventurous travels. This blog is my account of my travels. Hopefully, my blunders will assure others that they are not the only ones lost in translation.
