Victory Stand in Brazil

Fourteen years ago I was teaching a class in Brazil. This is the only time that I have been to Brazil, but I have some good memories of the trip.

Go Kart Racing, Victory Stand, Brazil, SportsOne of the memories was standing atop a victory stand.

On the last day of my trip I went Go-Kart racing with some of my students and colleagues. We had a lot of fun at the indoor track.

This was a staged picture as I was not the winner of the competition. In fact, I came in dead last.

Go Kart Racing, Sao Paulo Brazil, Indoor Go Kart Track, SportsI did have a lot of fun though as it was the fastest go kart that I had ever driven. All of my colleagues had spent lots of time at the track so had a lot of experience.

Plus, my go kart had to carry a bit more weight than the rest of them πŸ™‚

For more about my last day in Brazil, see my post Brazil Memories.

I am watching the Olympics now and will go to bed as soon as the swimming events are over. I know the results already, but I want to see the races.

It has taken a few commercial breaks to get this post written. Perhaps I should have pulled out the laptop πŸ™‚

Hopefully I will find some time this week to write some posts with some substance πŸ˜‰
