Departing Boston 7pm Sat 7/23 to JFK to Rio then fly to Goiania – arrive 5pm Sun 7/24 , bus (12hrs) to Canarana and then 1.5 hr dirt road ride to ranch. Arrive mid-day Mon 7/25.
Have been checking the weather forecast daily and even though it’s winter in Brazil, the temp is very close to New England in summer.
My packing list is ever expanding so I need to whittle it down to the bare essentials to fit into one suitcase and a backpack (leaving room for souvenirs from Rio). Will run errands today and do last minute stuff tomorrow.
