Floripa, Part Seven

Ahh!  Only three more full days here in the lovely Florianopolis.  It is definitely time to go home, and I am looking forward to being back in Canada – but there are so many people and things I am going to miss.  I actually cried yesterday while saying goodbye to some friends, and it wasn’t even the last time seeing them.  Floripa is also known as the Island of Magic, and it’s not hard to see why… truly, in many ways, it is a magical place.  I hope I have been able to give you a glimpse of that.  Here are a few more reasons why I have fallen in love:
