Thanksgiving in Rio



(in italiano)

You might wonder what has happened to us. We are still in Rio, although counting backward the days we have left. It is full Spring here, meaning that time of the year in which the temperatures in Rio and in Michigan are exactly the same: 30's during the day, 20's during the night....the only difference is that one is in Celsius and the other in Fahrenheit! Going back to our "real" life of living around the clock behind a driving wheel will not be easy. Add the freezing temperatures of January in Michigan, and, excuse for the choice of words, it really SUCKS!!!

But let's not think about these sad facts life and talk instead of how I (Monica) spent Thanksgiving day here in Rio. It was a gorgeous day, breezy and warm, with deep blue skies. In the morning I went to the Leblon Farmer Market which was in itself a real celebration of the bountiful production of fruits and veggies in this country. In the afternoon I could not resist the temptation of going to the beach and take a dip in the rough waters of Leblon. The view around me was stunning, something for which I will always be grateful to whatever divinity is out there. On the way back home, under the shade of the tall trees lining the streets of Leblon, I was plain happy; I have always loved Thanksgiving for its celebration of coziness and friendship in a setting unspoiled by the obligation of giving greetings or exchanging presents. This one, in a sunny beach of Rio will stay with me for a long time.

The evening meal is also worth a mention: a piece of ostrich meat (talking of whom brought to the table the biggest bird on Thanksgiving day!) and a piece of "abobora" (pumpkin) from the market.









Vi state chiedendo cosa ci e' successo? Beh, siamo ancora a Rio ma abbiamo cominciato a contare i giorni che mancano per la nostra partenza. Qui ora e' piena primavera, vale a dire il periodo dell'anno in cui le temperature di Rio e del Michigan coincidono: sui 30 gradi di giorno e 20 gradi di notte....la sola differenza e' che gli uni sono in Celsius e gli altri in Fahrenheit! Tornare alla nostra vita "antica", con i minuti sempre contati e costantemente seduti dietro al volante non sara' facile. Se poi ci aggiungi le temperature polari di Gennaio in Michigan, e', scusate la parola, proprio uno SCHIFO!!!

Ma non ci dilunghiamo su pensieri troppo tristi e parliamo invece su come io (Monica) ho speso il giorno del Ringraziamento, anche noto come il giorno del tacchino, qui in Rio. Era una giornata meravigliosa, calda e ventilata, con cieli di un blu profondo. Alla mattina ero stata al mercato all'aperto di Leblon, in se' una celebrazione della copiosa produzione di frutta e verdura del Brasile. Nel pomerriggio, non seppi resistere alla tentazione di andare alla spiaggia e fare un bagno nelle acque sempre agitate di Leblon. La vista attorno a me era da mozzafiato, un qualcosa per cui saro' sempre grata a chiunque divinita' ci sia li' fuori. Sulla via del ritorno a casa, all'ombra degli alberi alti che bordano le vie di Leblon, ero proprio felice; ho sempre amato la festa del Ringraziamento perche' celebra lo stare bene con gli altri senza l'obbligo di scambiare auguri o regali. Il giorno del Ringraziamento di questo anno, in una spiaggia assolata di Rio, restera' con me per molto tempo.

La cena serale e' pure degna di menzione: un pezzo di struzzo (probabilemte vincendo la gara di chi porta l'uccello piu' grande in tavola nel giorno del Ringraziamento!) e un pezzo di "abobora" (zucca marina) presa al mercato.
