This is definitely one of my most memorable stay overseas. Host is very helpful, and she really assisted me with many things.
I went over alone, without knowing the language or the places. As translation apps can be inaccurate, she still remained patient and will attempt to understand my questions and concerns.
In the first few days, she was very kind to drive me around to get the supplies I needed. As I learn my way around, she suggested places that I could try visit.
Some days when she was free, she took me around and showed me the beautiful sights and places. Sometimes, she had friends over and would always invite me to join them. I even got the chance of meeting her family. As a visitor/tourist, this really made me feel welcomed and very much at home, because I never felt left out.
On other days, when I had nothing much planned, she would take me with her while she run some errands. That would definitely give anyone an accurate picture of how life is over there.
In terms of food, Host is thoughtful and would always offer me if I wanted breakfast even though it was not in the package. Some days, she would cook lunch/dinner for me if I happen to be in the house. What better way to learn of the meals that they have?
If it wasn't for my return flight ticket, I would have definitely extended my stay at the house. There was still so much to see and learn. Right now, I feel like I have found a home there.
I will miss her, her family, her friends, her neighbours, the meals that she cooked for me. I will treasure the experiences we had, and the wonderful memories I gained when I was in Cabo Frio.
