We then went to the Planalto Verde Ward, the largest in the stake. It isn´t the stake center, but has the satellite system because it´s the largest building.

We then went to the Américo Brasiliense Branch about 30 km outside of Araraquara. The chapel was a house made into a small chapel.

I felt like I was back in the olden days of my Brazilian mission.
|Is there a cost for horse parking?|
|Passing Rio de Janeiro?|

We stopped by a refueling station alongside the tollway for a late lunch. There was a big fire across the road (cane burning?) which added a little ash to the food.

We ran across the bat-mobile. It would have been a faster way to get home.
|They seem to like this car!|
We got back into São Paulo in the evening as it was getting dark and starting to rain. We were glad to be home before the rain caused flooding in the streets. We were tired, but we are certain Paulo was even more tired.
|Don´t worry, he survived!|
