Brazilian Challenge Day 63: Beach Bodies

On day 63 of my Brazilian Challenge, I was so very Brazilian. As per Jennifer’s suggestion, I totally sported a Brazilian bikini on Juquehy beach. And with my weight gain, this is much more brave and Brazilian than I was last year (see Preparing for the Beach).  But I looked around and realized I wasn’t such a freak.

In Brazil, everyone is free to wear a bikini… and they do. The in U.S., unless things have changed, it is not the same. You will not find that people feel a similar type of freedom in this category – at least it is not common. But on the beaches in this country, anything goes. I mean anything.

    I don’t think I could EVER one of those thong bikinis, not even if I had the perfect body.
    Way too revealing. I prefer something more modest and conservative.
