Day 15 may 16

Played with Michael all morning. Alcione found out today that we wouldn’t be coming back to Francisco Morato after we go to São Paulo. It was so difficult to see her break down. Our whole team assembled in the kitchen to hug her and love her. She knows we loved her and really appreciated everything she did for us the past days and all the things she’ll do for us in the next couple of days.
After lunch, we tried to book one of the places we wanted for debrief, but they only rented to families. We’re going to try and get another home to rent out.
Mike and I decided to have a boys day today, we went into the city centre; the girls went to see the lone tree.
We got into the city; I bought a long sleeve shirt finally. It’s freaking cold here. We then went to the tobacco store – to get incense sticks for our room. We then roamed around the town looking for a flower store and postcards. Mike ended up getting chocolates from the chocolate store – he got a present for Deanna and a present for Bianca. After that we started roaming around looking for a flower store. We got so lost – I had to go to Pasteleria Hong Kong (the only place I knew I could find someone to ask). It was good, they told us to go straight and turn left down a street – we turned down the wrong street. We ended up finding a girl dressed like Minnie Mouse, who was talking to random girls – one had a baby; think teen mom. They walked us to a floriculture – they sold fake flowers. We were so confused, not speaking portuguese kind of works for us; they didn’t know what we were saying when we were talking. Turns out they had real roses too! Mike ended up buying two white roses – one for Bianca and one for the mom who walked us to the flower store.
It was so much fun getting lost with mike today, we got on the bus, it was super busy. On the bus, one guy asked us if we were from the US – we said Canada. The guy then asked us if we wanted to buy weed off him, and I had to lie and say we were Christians; Christians in Brazil do not do drugs. It was awful that we had to lie, but it was so awkward on the bus.
