Boa tarde todo mundo,
Our last week was a great wrap up for our trip. After Marabá, we had a nice relaxing weekend with a day at the beach before getting back to work. After our relaxation, we set out to make sure we had everything wrapped up by the time we left on Friday. This mainly revolved around writing our final report and thank you cards. In addition, we visited a local public school on Thursday with Wederson from LEA lab for a robotics presentation. We presented ourselves to the class, in Portuguese! That was a challenge and required a bit of help from Wederson. After our presentation, Wederson took over and we walked around the room watching and occasionally helping the different teams with the various challenges.
We flew out Friday although I don’t think any of us wanted to leave :( Many goodbyes were said, none of which were happy.
To close this blog, I’d like to finish with one of my favorite quotes from this trip, courtesy of Antonio Ribeiro, our driver from Marabá: “Good friends never say good bye, they only ever say see you later”
