First Day in Sao Jose dos Campos

Charley and I arrived in Sao Jose dos Campos last night – we are “on our own” teaching at a different campus than the other GCC folks – we are about 2 hours away –got to sleep in this am, then headed out to explore our “street” – we are right in the center of the city, so we were able to explore the small parks, many street vendors and a great self serve restaurant – they guessed we were “Americanos” and were very helpful in directing us through the restaurant routine. We both regret that we did not study Portuguese with more diligence before our trip! We are attempting to learn helpful phrases, such as “Help!”and “How much does it cost?” We have the please, thank you and we don’t speak Portuguese down!
