I`m in the US!

Hello guys!! By now everybody must have forgotten about my included, I would say, as it`s been a huuuuge time since my last post. Many many many things changed in the meanwhile. The first thing is that I`m not living in Brazil any more: i`m spending one year abroad, in the US. I`m here as an au pair, this meaning that I`m here to take care of a family`s children. The family that is hosting me has two adorable girls!! They are the cutest things, very nice and easy to deal with. Of course, they`re kids, so they give me some work and can drive me a little bit crazy sometimes. Still, I have to say I`m very lucky to be with them :) If you want to see some pics of the girls, you can go to my picasa photo album and see the two little kids (they are 4 and 2 years old).
Yes, I know, the US are a huge country, almost as big as Brazil (wanna see the ranking?), so it`s kind of too vague to say : "I`m in the US". But can`t you guess from, the pic? Yeah, I live very close to washington DC :) Actually, I live in a small and quiet (maybe even too quiet) neighborhood in North Bethesda. Let`s say that by metro it takes me around 20 minutes to get to downtown Washington.
DC is a great city, there are so many things to see and do! I`ve been there a few times sighteseeing...but I haven`t seen a millionth of the things that are worth seeing!!
Ok, as usual, my post is getting too I`ll promise to tell you more about the city and my life here in North Bethesda. I also hope that this way i`ll keep everybody posted on my news..
C ya soon :)
