|Fortaleza, Ceara - Brazil slideshow|
I thought we would spend a few days relaxing in the city, waking up late, eating, going out for easy strolls for a couple of hours a day and taking it easy. But we kept our usual frantic pace every time we arrive at a place were we like. Fortaleza seems to have a lot going for it in terms of city: it is tropical but the sun is not overbearing as there is always a breeze. It is a large city of 2.4 million people but it is not overbearing or over crowded. By the end of our stay my feet was so sore I could not take another step. Good thing we were getting on a plane the next day to mom's house. All I could think was rest, relax and visit with friends and relatives while we rested from our travels.
