We have some exciting news on our hands, Sam and I are finally on our way! Sam and I met up in Chicago at Union Station at noon, grabbed a slice of deep dish Chicago pizza and headed out to O’Hare for our overnight flight to Sao Paolo. We are now sitting in the airport there on our 12 hour layover before our flight to Belem, using our free hour of wifi to post this update. We’ve finally made it! After the small struggle to get our visas, we are now even more grateful to finally be in country. Sam and I have determined that once we arrive at the hostel, we will have traveled between 36-40 hours (Sam more than me because he started in Minnesota), using planes, trains and automobiles! We can’t wait to meet up with Magann and Carson and get rolling on everything! More updates to come soon on our progress. Tchau for now!
