Just Another Day With Grandma

For most moms it is hard to keep up with your own mom, but for me it is nearly impossible.  She is the most active person I know.   Other than spoiling me to death during her two month visit, cleaning my kitchen and doing all our laundry, she gets up every morning at 4:30 a.m., has walked nearly all of Rio, and has been volunteering twice a week at daycare and school in the nearby favela of Cantagalo called Meninos Solar da Luz.   And, to top it off, this is what a normal day with grandma looks like around here.

Note: Christmas ornaments made of salt-based dough don’t work in Rio.  It is so humid that even after being baked they just get soft.   Too bad as they were so pretty.
