Homeward Bound

An early departure from the island requires another boat ride back to the mainland. The bus that awaits the group drives back to Curitiba, where everyone makes a quick stop at the expansive Sunday market in the heart of the city. Getting some last minute souvenirs, the group comes back together for a final meal at a restaurant in the city that features a very traditional meal with local flavors. Hurried back to the bus, the students get to the airport to catch a flight back to Sao Paulo. In the airport, the students sadly part with the Brazilian students from UNIMEP and board the plane. In an hour they land in the city, bound for another long flight to Miami and then Boston. Heads still spinning, the students arrive safely in the United States, after the trip of a lifetime.
