Our team of 17 California
administrators worked in Rio
de Janeiro, Brazil in April

Paulo Alves proved a wonderful Brazilian
addition to our team.  He contributed his
time to accompany the team to Maracana
Stadium for their first soccer match in the
world's largest soccer stadium!  He also
served as personal tour guide for many on
the team savvy enough to 'stick with him'
on excursions throughout the city.  He
even arrange two school visits- including a
one which included a wonderful dialog
with local students.  Thanks, Paulo!
