New Neighbourhood - Rua Oyapock






FuFu Life in Curitiba - Brazil
22nd August 2010 | Part Thirteen

FuFu's first month in Curitiba, Brazil, Latin America









It was a great day on the 22nd of August. So, i took my camera out exploring my new neighbourhood. Later, i walked to Botanical Garden before doing my weekly groceries shopping.

Guess what? I saw a type of flower in her full bloom! Like a kid jumping high and posing V when given candies, i was happily surrounding the plant and snapping pictures of our national flower - bunga raya (hibiscus).

It's nice to be allocated here at Rua Oyapock, Cristo Rei. From the historical downtown (Sao Francisco) to this vertically-densed residential area conglomerated with luxurious condominiums along one of the five main corridors in Curitiba. Need to mention that one of the landmarks of Curitba, Botanical Garden is only 3minutes walking from my apartment.

Just in case if you guys not realised that, it's my fifth month here in Curitiba, Brazil, Latin America. Time flies. Here are some of my flashes back - my ever first touch down in Rio de Janeiro (the new 4th continent i have been to), meeting and staying with my host at Sao Francisco area for a week, attending a Christianity possession, wandering around the city centre, knowing other international exchange students, visiting Botanical Garden, clubbing until 5:30am, visiting Iguacu Falls, first kiss with a Brazilian girl in Blumenau, one day train trip to Merretes, etc.

Still have 4 months left before flying back to Germany (April 2011). But trust me, i will do my best exploring Curitiba thoroughly while doing my project here before i start my backpacking journey in Latin America next week. If not, until i am back here again before heading to Rio de Janeiro for the carnival!

I find it amusing to pronounce the last name of your new neighborhood. At any rate, I'm sure you're better off in warm Brazil than in freezing Germany right now!

Merry Christmas Fufu!

Casendra said...

Che-Cheh said...

This part of town have so many condos. Are you staying at one of the condo now?

I guess when we see something that's related to Malaysia in other country, we kinda miss Malaysia... yeah?

Life for Beginners said...

Hooray for bunga raya in Brazil! *woot woot*

Actually, didn't our national flower come from South America, originally? :)

renaye said...

I have been reading your entries all through my morning break, and I must admit the whole article has been very enlightening and rather well written. I assumed I would assist you to recognize that for some reason this weblog does not view well in Internet Explorer 8. I wish Microsoft might stop converting their software. I’ve a query for you. Could you thoughts replacing weblog roll hyperlinks? That would be in point of fact neat!
