This post here it's an ode to all of my photography mates :) Meetup.com it's an awesome website were you can find people with the same interests and hobbies. It was fundamental for my integration in Richmond. Thank you guys!
Basically, we meetup for events and festivals, for mingles and also workshops. I learn a lot with them!
Some weeks ago we went to Libby Hill that it has an awesome view from downtown Richmond.
And it's been 2 years since I put my feet in Uncle Sam land! I survived!
I'm just kidding, Richmond is a lovely city and it's providing me tons of awesome moments!
Thank you guys for all of your support too! It make things so much easier ;)
Apple pie is the best-known example of a fruit pie. It's a pie very popular around here, specially at this time of the year when the apples can be freshly picked from the trees. I present you the american-style apple pie, this beautiful double crusted pie. The apples are the queens of this dessert but the crust is huge deal here too. There is a lot of tricks for having a perfect pie crust. Keeping the dough cool, refrigerate it between steps and before baking to promote a flaky crust and help the pie maintain its shape. For fullest flavor, use a blend of apples in a pie. The ingredients are very simple, probably you will have in your pantry. So, run to the kitchen and start doing it!
Music+people+food+dogs=festival! Another festival? Yes, this is Richmond! This time, the dogs stayed at home because this is a huge festival. I'm talking about The folk festival! The festival that brings music from around the world! Really cool! It started friday night and it last till Sunday evening. The weather was perfect :)
PS: I missed our brazilian brothers with the Forró! tu ru
Some photos of the Italian festival in Richmond. Some pastas, pizzas, cannolis, wine and music! Simple and cozy as this :)
But now I have a question! Richmond has a greek festival, an italian festival, an Oktoberfest, a french film festival... what about a portuguese festival?? Common! or an Iberian festival, for instance... Oh Richmond, Richmond!... ahah
One of the best things in living in USA is experiencing the multiculturality! Richmond is not quite the best example, but still, the chance of finding food from around the world is pretty high. During the super amazing trip this summer, we ate a lot of different food, so I decided to revive it in this post. I wish I had photograph every single meal just to show you...oh well, next time! ;)
Gambling, shopping and fine dining, Las Vegas is
the Sin city! We only stayed one day in Las Vegas and it was the day I took
more photos… Las Vegas has so many cool and extravagant hotels. It’s really
crazy! It’s kind of a Disneyland for adults. The gambling and entertainment
industry (ui!) in Las Vegas is mostly focused in the Las Vegas Strip. Actually
we didn’t have the chance to go downtown.
The first major resort development was the Mirage
(check the photos) opened in 1989, after that was just resort, after resort!
There is the The Venezian with its gondolas, the beautiful and magnificient The
Caesers Palace, The Bellagio with its famous dancing fountains, The Treasure
Islands for a more pirate look, The Paris and its replica of the Eiffel Tower,
The New York, among many others. New York with a small Manhattan,.. I mean!….
On the Strip you can find fifteen of the world's top 25 largest hotels by room,
with a total of over 62,000 rooms! Incredible! Oh, I think that Mr. Sinatra was
wrong, Las Vegas is the city that never sleeps! ahah
But you know, I guess I need to go back because I
didn’t get married, or drunk or even spent my money gambling.. ahah
