... the strike ending.
Also lots of international IAESTE students (most are European) have started placements now in the first week of August and we all met up for food on monday night. A few were at a republica party last night, which was quite good and very organized; you need to prepurchase tickets, they hire security for the gate and there is a last entry time!
Off to Foz this weekend, flying from Campinas tonight, looking forward to not taking a bus!
On Thursday and Friday I attended the 4th Brasilian Bio-Hydrogen Conference in Sao Carlos. It was all in Portuguese but I can understand most of the writing. I learnt a lot about bio-hydrogen, because of the numerous Interval for "Coffee Break" that there were, allowing people to tell me about their work in English.
The Brasilian time zone still annoys me, I got up a six, walked to chemistry in Araraquara for 7 and waited ...

Also today I played my first game of futesol, basically five aside football but against brazilians! I wasn't the best, and not the worst.

While the university of Sao Paulo is supposed to be the best in South America, it did not have an amazing campus. However the lab we visited was very busy and the work the research group is doing is very interesting.
Going to Sao Paulo tonight for the weekend, weather not looking great, its been cloudy and cold (15 C) here all day.
... Its food was really expensive by Brazilian standards (75 reals for some of the pizzas! about £25), so we didn't have any there. Lots of the waiters could speak a little French, so i did the ordering in french. They said they got lessons before the team (and 'lots' of media) arrived!
We watched the Brazil vs. Netherlands game there, which was really good! (despite the scoreline) Returned to Araraquara at night, planning to watch the final tomorrow at a sports bar in town.
