After getting home early in the morning, I had another couple of hours sleep before getting up to do my runs. This morning, I only did my sprints and my goodness they don't get any easier haha. I then packed my bag and headed to hotel for lunch time :)
After lunch, I joined the team on their activity of going to the markets. It was quite an experience because as much as people look at me being a gringo, the players were stopped at any opportunity for a photo. Famous. Even the physio and video tech got asked for their autographs in the super market.
We walked around markets and then had a yummy cappuccino at a cafe. Following this we returned to hotel for dinner before I left to pick up my bag and get the metro to the bus station. Two guys guided me to where I was to go and gave me tips on being cautious. Next stop Belo. The bus left at 830 and was to arrive at 830 in Belo. As with everything in brazil, it was no suprise when we didn't leave until 845 and arrive at 845.
