Early in the afternoon, we caught our flight from Porto Alegre to Rio De Janiero and said goodbye to our guide Marcelo Arruda and thanked him and Explorations by Thor for a wonderful experience .
In Rio we had a six hour layover and then an overnight 8 hour flight to Miami. After a short layover in Miami, we boarded a plane to Baltimore and our group said goodbye to each other there after about 33 hours of traveling. It was a great trip and we all learned alot about Brazilian soybean production and culture along the way. Each of us brought back some tidbits that will be useful in our work with soybeans in the future and we all plan to share our experiences with others.
