We´ve made it! After two long flights (10 hours from Toronto to Sao Paulo) we are in Brazil. It has been fantastic to connect with the other Canadian Innovative Teachers. I can´t wait to meet educators from all over the world. Darlene, my project collaborator and traveler, started a voicethread about our travels. Please comment and contribute.
Our Canadian group also has a blog about our adventures. http://canadainbrazil.edublogs.org
Our first adventure was in customs at the airport. We standing around after a 10 hour flight, waiting in line, only to see Twilight stars Tyler Launter and Kristen Stewart in line. No one was really noticing, but I knew who they were and quietly nudged and poked people to bring it to their attention. I got a lot of who are they?! Not the 15 year old girl crowd apparently.
Jodi was brave enough to ask for an autograph and Darlene snapped this photo:
Everyone was very calm and collected in the customs area and the baggage claim area, but once they stepped out into the main waiting area there was a crowd of screaming girls mobbing them.I was just trying to get out of the way!

We arrived to a lovely hotel and used the time to get to know everyone and their projects a bit better. I can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings.
