My name is John Yokus I am one of the pilgrims to World Youth Day from the Church of the Holy Family and I will be sharing with you our wonderful first day in Brazil.
The World Youth Day pilgrims:
|The Girls. (The men are taking the picture)|
When we got off the plane, we hopped on a bus that took us to the city of Jacarei (in the state of Sao Paulo) where we are currently staying. Now to tell you the most amazing part of today :D When we got off the bus we were instantly enveloped by the really friendly locals who looked more excited than we were!
|Me and my "adopted Mama"|
And after all that fun we went to visit our host families for a few hours. Which meant showers and food (maybe even a little coveted shuteye) for the pilgrims :) I can´t even describe how kind and awesome our new families were... It was a little overwelming.
The last part of our day was a Fiesta. Ohhhh my was it truly spectacular. There was Music and dancing, unfortunetly due to the lighting and my camera´s low battery the dancing shots was slightly blurry. Everyone danced and had fun while attempting to sing the native songs.
And now it is time to bid you Adeus and "Boa Noite"!
We will post again soon-
