One of my advanced English students very graciously invited me to accompany her on a trip to the state of Paraná. What a fantastic opportunity - I had wanted to do this trip, but it's so much better to have a friend to share it with! We traveled to Foz do Iguaçu, home of a massive waterfall, and Curitiba, the state capital.
The first day was spent traveling; we went by bus to Porto Alegre - we took the "common" bus, which makes many stops along the way, and it took about three and a half hours. Then we took the city train to the airport, got checked in and on the way.
Here we are on the plane before takeoff. Extreme close-up... I really think my grandpa's nose looked better on him than it does on me.
