Here’s my Rio update! I’m still on the Road to Rio, and the final destination is getting closer every day! Only 151 days to go! Here is where I am in my preparations:
I booked my housing Saturday on airbnb. Even though I’m still a little nervous about using airbnb, I think it has security measures in place to deal with all of my worries. I’m renting a room in a house in Recreio dos Bandeirantes (which is near Barra da Tijuca, where the Olympic Village and most of my events are located).
Where I’ll Be Volunteering:
I still don’t know. 😦
I met other volunteers who are going to Rio and who live in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania on Sunday, February 28. We met at a restaurant called Vonda’s Kitchen in Newark, NJ. After some trouble trying to get to the location, I finally made it, and it was amazing! Everyone was so sweet, and I loved meeting people who are doing the same thing as me. We all love the Olympics so much, so it was fun to share stories about our different Roads to Rio!That’s the update for now, but expect more updates on my Road to Rio soon! I can’t believe it’s only 151 days to go! 😀
If you know of any fun and exciting places in Rio de Janeiro that I should go to while I’m there, let me know by commenting! Thanks for reading!
