Chris and I at the game.
That poor guy in the front. Not sure who he was.
The crew after the Santa Cruz victory
After the game we met in the lobby to say our final goodbye. It was really hard saying goodbye to everyone of our Brazilian friends. I feel like I have gained so many new friends from the great country of Brazil. They truly treated us with amazing hospitality. I ensured them that they will always have a place to stay in Virginia. I hope we can meet again in the future. For I feel like I have a lot to repay them for. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for our hosts. It never ceases to amaze me how gracious people can be. As I wrote last year, "traveling reaffirms my faith in mankind. People are good at heart and want to help others."
Once again I have learned so much about myself and Brazil.
