Farewell to Brasília

My trip to Brasília was short, but immensely enjoyable. The weather was pleasant, although I might have preferred not to get caught in a spring downpour after lunch on Sunday! Temperatures were warm (but not too hot) during the day and cool at night, perfect for sleeping. I was also able to be in Brasília for the spectacle of Election Day, a day that is sure to have impact on the world in the year to come. For, while I was there, Brazil elected its first female president. I have just a few miscellaneous photos left to post: a couple of insect pictures (although I would have loved to have photographed one of the spectacular dragonflies I saw), a wildflower, and a photo of myself.

    You were always great with taking flower pictures. Glad you had a nice time there, and what no genealogy on this trip?

    • Steve says:

      No, Barbara. No genealogy this trip. Actually I did not do anything genealogical on either this trip or on my European trip earlier this year. OK, I did visit a cemetery in Sweden and a grave in Finland, but those hardly count since I have no connections in Sweden or Finland. Oh, wait! My stepmother’s stepfather was Finnish! I guess I should have done some research in Finland!
