It’s my last day in Brazil; it’s 9pm and, well, I’m going to bed so I can do the following tomorrow:
- 3am: wake-up call
- 3:30am: depart the hotel
- 6:17am BRT: depart for Lima, Peru
- 9:27am EST (i.e., BRT -2 hours): arrive in Lima, Peru
- 12pm: school visit
- 3:45pm: school visit
- 9:56pm: depart for Quito, Ecuador
- 12:15am: arrive in Quito, Ecuador
- c1am: arrive at the hotel
That, my friends, is what we in the industry refer to as “a twenty-four hour working day.” I’m not complaining–I get hour-for-hour for everything over seven–but for those who think I’m lounging on a beach…well, I’m not. At least not until Saturday.
I’ve enjoyed Brazil–the food, the weather, and especially the people have made for a unique experience–but the poverty in Sao Paulo often overwhelmed me. I’ll pontificate on that later; for now it’s time for a Skype date and the merest excuse for a good night’s sleep. Chau!
