Well I'm back in Australia now, but I thought I better do a final entry with a few pics. So since I last wrote, there's been a couple more highlights that need pointing out. First was probably one of if not the best parts of the whole trip, meeting my sponsor child in Fortaleza. I've put a few pics up, but basically it was a fantastic day that was both emotional & unforgettable. I had a slight change of plans around this time, and ended up going to Sweden instead of Switzerland. This was partly due to deciding to come home a bit early (coz I missed all of you of course!) & to visit a Swedish family I met in Brazil. So I flew to Stokholm, spent a few days looking around the city, then started the long flights home!
Soooooooooooo now it's all over..... I'm glad to be back, but also looking forward to a similar trip in the future, and to a GREAT YEAR OF MUSIC IN 2009!
