First Day in Brazil

It's been a couple of days since I've finally arrived in Brazil. After crossing an ocean (the Atlantic) the plane approached Fortaleza, clouds here and there and a warm but comfortable 26 degrees Celsius warmed the air. The landing is one of my favorites, nothing like the landings in airports such as Heathrow where the plane sometimes gets set on a holding pattern.

It is also great to see the family waiting for you as you leave the arrivals door, the ones I haven't seen for almost 2 years. The travel is grueling, the flight arrives late at night. No surprise I went to sleep, but I was still jet lagged, 6 hours…

Morning arrives and breakfast included a couple of "carioquinhas" (similar to a baguette but a third the size, crunchy crust on the outside, soft inside). Some more unpacking later and it was time for lunch, on the menu "peixe a delicia". Here is a recipe for those interested (using the exact same fish).
