10 Days To Show James The Place We Call HOME in Brazil: DAY 10

TODAY’S HIGHLIGHTS: More Sao Paulo and James Returns to Canada               ( definitely not a highlight)

Today we had a few hours to see some more of São Paulo before James flies home to Canada. He will be home for a few days, drive to his school in New Brunswick for a few days, drive to Montreal to get his Japanese Visa and then in a three weeks be on his way to Japan for 8 months! We loved spending these last 10 days with him and will miss him so much.

Liberdade is a Japanese district in São Paulo and we thought it only fitting that we see this place! It is home to the largest Japanese  community outside of Japan in the world and has been growing since the 1950s. It was great to see some of the familiar things from Asia…food, writing on signs, lamps, lucky cats and even Japanese anime and manga girls.

Liberdade is close to Praca de Se, a public square that is considered the center of the city. The square was the place for many historic events in São Paulo’s history. There are so many wonderful buildings here.

We spent some time walking down Rua Oscar Freire. This is an amazing shopping district with great cafes. I loved it! We even stopped in to the Havaianas Concept Store.

Then it was time to take James to the airport. It’s wonderful to greet someone at the airport but goodbyes are always so difficult. Goodbye James…at least we will see you at Christmas!

Waiting patiently
I feel the same way James…Goodbyes are never fun 🙂
Bye James, Have a safe flight and try to get some sleep 🙂

WELL…that was our wonderful 10 days with our youngest son! We loved every minute of it. Now it’s time to get back to routine…but only for two weeks because then we fly HOME!!!

Boa Noite!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
