We are in Manaus, Brazil. Our bags are not here. :(
That´s a super bummer, but oh well...the up side is that, although terribly inconvenient after traveling forEVER, we get to go shopping once we reach our final destination in a few hours.
As I said, we are in Manaus. They have a little area where you can use the internet for $2 per half-hour. We have about another hour and a half here before our 2-hour flight to Brasilia takes off. Then, we will be met by an Asas de Socorro friend and have about a 2-hour drive to Anapolis, our final destination.
The flights have been really good. The first flight we had 3 seats for us 2. Then, the longer flight (5 hours) we each had 3 seats. It was nice. And, we watched Mission Impossible 3, got gifts from the airline, and had dinner as we watched the movie.
This is the first time I´ve flown without kids since we had them. It´s amazing how much time you have to just do whatever you want. Although we miss our kids immensely already, we are enjoying our ``free time`` too. Thanks so much, by the way, for your prayers regarding our saying goodbye to our kiddos. It went very smoothly, just laughing and hugging and having fun. They will have a great time and will get a gift from us each day, so I´m sure they will be loving us ``going on a trip.``
I will update more later. Just wanted to let you all know that we arrived in Brazil. Be remembering us, our kids, and now our luggage too (we should be getting it sometime Thursday). Thank you so much.
