#AUinRio

July 30, 2016


Today we ate fresh fruit from the market, enjoyed the Famous Brazilian Acai (ice cream consistency), and drank the delicious Guarana soda, best served over ice with orange slices! Yes it was another day of embracing the culture and eating like a king.

#AUinRio

We did manage to get some swimming in between all the eating, just a simple aerobic session with some speed mixed in. The guys are looking so ready to race I'm just trying to stay out of their way. 2 more days before we leave for the village.

A large group of MMA fighters are staying in our hotel, so a group of us were given tickets to go and watch the main event, the Jungle fight in Paraíso, a suburb of São Paulo, about 15min drive from the hotel. It was really nice to get out and see something other than a pool and hotel for a change.

#AUinRio

We watched 4 fights, with only 1 getting us on the edge of our seat, but I wouldn't get into that cage! I'm glad swimming isn't a contact sport!

Fun day, let's see what tomorrow holds for us.
