Campinas Travel Blog

I wrote an enormous post, then TravBuddy didn't publish it and I lost it all. Even if I hit 'back'. There's a bug that would be nice to see fixed, even if we all should be used to ctrl + c, ctrl + v by now. Sorry, my mistake.

I said some things about Campinas being a college city and an excellence center for medicine and technology in Brazil, though I'm not near any of those universities (like UNICAMP and PUC-Camp). There's not much to do downtown other than basic downtown stuff - which only works during business hours.

Still, with most of the things we had to do here already done, we intend to have dinner tonight at the allegedly largest mall in Latin America. And for tomorrow, a little anxiety with the perspective of going back to Hopi Hari, one of our biggest theme parks. Then, São Paulo, to visit some cousins and friends.

The funniest moment of our trip, at least for my mom, was when a cab driver asked if she was my wife. Smart way to get a fat tip!

Oh babe! What a way to lose a blog! It happened to me once when my touchpad played up and sent me back a page. I now type everything in Word first then copy and paste.
