I had to make a move to my next host as the lovely couple were due to get married and then go on honeymoon. I had breakfast with Zusanna and then she took me to the bus. They were so kind to show me where to get off on google maps and give me precise details.
I arrived at the apartment and woke up my new host who had been out the night before. I didn't train this morning as I knew I would go to gym with team.
At 1pm, I went with Cleber to work and tried to get ticket to Belo Horizonte but I didn't have enough Reals changed and then to the hotel for lunch at 130 with the team. So much good food.
After that we went to training, and I used the fire brigade gym which was so nice. The best I have seen in Brazil so I did my runs then weights. I was very happy that at the end of training we played a staff game! Yas, finally a game :) it was very tiring but lots of fun. :)
Afterwards it was dinner time and then I had a coffee with Kate and caught up before my host picked me up. We hung out at his for a while and then decided to walk around and see his neighbour hood. It was much nicer than downtown with a more community feel. Bars and restaurants galore and very busy. It was nice and many different bars. He showed me the quirky one which was coolest as lots of hippies
All of a sudden it was pouring of rain and we were running from undercover to undercover. We then found Clebera friends and were so happy to take a lift. We arrived home after one am after soaking in the local atmosphere.
