As I truly didn't know it could me the one and only time over there, I decided to take the most complete tour over the Grand Canyon nearby Las Vegas!
First a van from Las Vegas to Boulder City. Second a flight from Boulder City to the GRAND CANYON'S WEST RIM. After that, a helicopter flight over that NATURAL WONDER, going down to the COLORADO RIVER! There, a boat ride! Then, a flight back to the edges of the Canyon to visit some places, such as the Grand Canyon Skywalk with some lunch served over there! Finally, all the way back to Las Vegas by plane and van again! It was certainly totally worthwhile and very enjoyable!

"IN BRAZIL, these days, we're having CARNIVAL (CARNAVAL)! Today, I only have good memories of those parties, when I was a child and a teenager and I really enjoyed the "dancing balls" we had in a club, in VILA DOS OPERADORES, a small village we used to live in! For children, in the afternoon, for adults, at night! I miss all the music (some of them we don't have anymore during these days - yes, they're old fashioned!) I miss the bands, confetti & "serpentina", whistles & colorful plastic hammers, masks & fantasies, dancing around that large room I used to love so much, without thinking about anything, just about how much I loved all that, even the hot weather! I miss the soft drinks I used to have to get some refreshment and the swimming-pool we all went to after all that dancing! Or even taking a bike ride, so happily, before going back home! It's been a while I don't do any of those things anymore! Not even Carnaval in Rio I watch on TV! I usually go to my parents's place or stay home, just resting! This year, I'm even studying! In between, other memories about what I mostly enjoy doing come up to my mind: TRAVELING! And I dream, I dream A LOT about my next adventures! Yes, many brazilians still enjoy CARNAVAL, but many don't and find other things to do during these days!"
