This is just a quick email to let you know, as I’m sure you would already have heard, that we are back from our big trip, although we haven’t heard from Jill.
We had an absolutely wonderful time. Having transfers at the airports and being taken to and from our hotels made all the difference, and everything went exactly according to plan. So congratulations to all concerned for the planning and thank you so much.
Buzios, just out of Rio de Janeiro, was a great place to stay for a couple of days or so, and the hotel, Port Bay Glenzhaus, was superb. So add it to your itinerary for others!
We have one other comment, and this is about the hotel we stayed at in Rio, the Hotel Atlantico Copacabana. The hotel itself was fine, and the location was good, but the reception staff (middle-aged men) were not at all friendly and there were no welcoming smiles or that sort of thing. Everything was very efficiently done, mind you, but it just lacked that something. Just for the record.
