I continue my “coming back to your country” series of posts. Earlier you could have already read my “How it feels to go back to your country”, and got an idea how the process of moving goes.
UPD: Half a year later. How does it still feel?
Time passes and I’m finally here, in Russia, already for a week. It was a really shocking week, full of great time with friends, exploring again my own culture and noticing tones of differences between Russia and Latin America, mainly Colombia. I have a lot to say, but will try to be short and specific.

Till the most famous carnival in the world less than three weeks left! While you are thinking yet to go or not to go, to buy or not to buy, almost all of the carnival tickets are sold out! If you are in Rio de Janeiro, there’s no way to miss this fantastic Brazilian carnival!
The whole world trumpets that Rio de Janeiro is one of the best cities in the world to celebrate New Year. If you know only few things about Rio they are for sure Christ the Redeemer, Copacabana beach and fireworks. That’s right! And on the 1st of January I can assure you of this: the main celebration of the year is AWESOME! If you still doubt if it’s worth to spend your holidays in Rio de Janeiro, than book your ticket soon for this December to see it with your own eyes!
It’s impossible to compare two different countries in a week, even more because of the size of Brazil, but for travellers who don’t have much time to spend in Latin America it will be useful.
