Of course it wouldn't be a trip to Brazil without some disappointment. We turfed up at the karaoke bar dead on opening time and... it wasn't open, and there was actually some variant of a Hell Hound guarding the place. "OK, this is Brazil", we thought, so we went across to a café opposite and had a beer. We waited 30-45 minutes and then went back, but it was still closed. Lu went to a small newspaper shop to get something for Amélie, and I suggested she ask the guy if he knew when they reopened. He said that one of the owners had walked past a few minutes before, so we went back again to the door and... it was open. My hopes soared! The other owner poked his head out the door and Lu asked if they were open. He said they weren't and had just got back from their holiday. Gah!

Why they didn't put the dates they were going to be away on their website and their Facebook page?! Although I had asked when we left last time, and they had specifically stated the 5th. Gah!

At least Amélie was ecstatic to see us when we came home (with me in a grump), as she did an impromptu somersault.

sorry you didn't get your karaoke, I know you really enjoy it

I'm having one of those it-seems-like-everyone-is-out-to-get-me moments. More specifically, there are times here when I just want to do one simple thing, which I've tried to think about every possible way it could fail, yet it still fails for some reason I didn't think of.

I'll get over it, but the frustration is I won't be able to go for another year, more or less.
