I made it alright to Belo. I was met at the airport by a whole family. There names are Silvestre (father and owner of the company I´ll be working for), Regina (mother), Carolina (daughter,25yrs has boyfriend) and Gustavo who will be here on monday (son, 22yrs).
I am actually staying at their home sharing a room with Gustavo. It is a really nice house, obviously upper class. The whole family works for TECTRAN, they do civil engineering consulting for transportation systems, ie roads etc. The family has hosted quite a few people from around the world all doing internships at this company so I can imagine they know what they´re doing.
Total travel time from door to door was 29 hours. Supprisingly I´m feeling not that tired but I´m sure I´ll crash tonight. I actually start work tomorrow at 8am so there is no rest for the travelling man.
So things are looking good. I´ll update you later on how the work is, Brazilian culture, etc... So until then, goodnight!
