Eli's little sister is visiting from Rio, her 15th birthday present from her parents. Usually, it's tradition for Carioca girls to go to Disney World for their 15th birthday, but it was more affordable and easier for her to come visit us. We have a jam-packed schedule for her, which involves Eli and I switching off, though since I'm still working full time I only have nights and weekends.
His sister has never been outside of Brazil, so this being her first international trip and first taste of the U.S., there are tons and tons of things for her to see and not enough time to do it. Still, I'm trying to keep in mind that she is fundamentally a teenage girl who likes teenagery things, so when I do get time to go out with her, I'm aiming to do stuff with her that she actually thinks are fun.
So far, she's been to Times Square, Madame Tussauds, the Museum of Natural History and the Space Center, Central Park, many, many stores, the ballet, ice skating, and sledding. Eli has the usual line up of museums and tourist attractions on the list, but I'm open to suggestions if anyone has any really fun ideas that would be especially fun for a teenager.
