|Saturday morning ice session with children|
|Ge' with the Steiger Cup|
Ge' runs a hockey team called the Mad Parrots and is a huge part of hockey in Brazil , i am not saying he is the only one but on this trip he was the one that mattered and made everything very accessible for us .... from hotels to tours to ice times this guy made it all so easy for us ! Ge' also runs a hockey school for children which we were happy to see and help run for him on this weekend . This all happens at Barra on Ice which just so happened to be the area we stayed in also thanks to Ge' :) Barra was a nice area , not very touristy which is always best as we had the best time mingling with locals at the many bars in the area . The kids we taught were all eager to get better and there was a good number of them on both days we went ! The event was all advertised that The Travelling Goalie was coming so i am hoping it helped . It was a great couple days sweating alcohol while trying to teach children to skate ... i wonder if the kids smelled it on me HAHAHA ! they probably did .
|Brazilian Zamboni ?|
The first weekend of our adventure ( me , Timo and Andi ) was really amazing filled with hockey , drinks and lots of amazing food which we called the meat massacres ! There was a lot of joking around and funny pictures , during the upcoming week we did more touristy stuff i will talk about in my next blog . Did i mention that this rink was in a supermarket ? look at the pic below for proof :)
