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:
Shasta’s grandmother, the lovely Silvia
hangin’ by the pool with Pai
playing with keys – he has a newfound love for keys! I’m going to get him his own set when we get back.
you wouldn’t know it, but this is right in the middle of the city…
have I mentioned that they have very cool graffiti art here??

Here’s a clip of the music: I love it! It has such a good vibe 🙂
