My friend Amber finally got here to Fortaleza! My host brother and I went to pick her up on Tuesday night, took her out to eat for sandwiches then I went with her to make sure she got checked in at her hostel safely. Her hostel is pretty dang cool. It’s a hostel and a bar all in one, and the people there are so chill and nice. They have free wifi and breakfast, too. Makes me want to stay there a few nights haha. On her first day we went to Praia do Futuro, the best beach for sunbathing and swimming in Fortaleza. We ate really good food that was really inexpensive, always a plus, and we drank Skol beer, the popular favorite here in Brazil.
After the beach I went to the gym for another Brazilian butt workout (haha). The hostel owners told us that there was a reggae party that night there so we definitely didn’t want to miss that! I took a taxi there, only about ten minutes away. We had so much fun! The reggae band was super cool, and so were the people.
