Chegada no Brasil

posted May 24, 2010, 5:01 PM by Ethan Shirley   [ updated May 24, 2010, 5:51 PM ]

We arrived safely in Cuiabá, Brazil and have had a day of rest at Ethan´s friend´s house, and our first feast of arróz com feijão (rice with beans). We then figured out our finances at HSBC, and a test run with the ATM.

Our grand plans for the next week include meeting with our construction contractor and well-digger in Poconé (the gateway town to the Pantanal), determining transportation for construction materials and supplies, and arranging homestays.
After tomorrow, we will be lodging in the Pantanal where internet will be a bit patchy but we look forward to updating you once or twice a week from there.
Até a próxima vez!
Ethan & Julie
