I have started to gather a list of people who would like to travel together from Sao Paulo to Paraty the mornings of August 25 and again on August 26. I am not an official symposium organizer, I'm just doing this to make traveling a little easier and less expensive for us!
If you are interested in traveling with a number of instructors and others on either of those dates, please contact me directly by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
with your name, date of arrival, time of arrival, airline and flight number, contact phone if you have it. If you want to be picked up in downtown Sao Paulo (everyone will gather at one hotel), please let me know where you will be staying in Sao Paulo in case we need to contact you.
Cost will be less than if you travel by private bus co. to Paraty, as it's cheaper as a group of five or more.
Exact cost will depend on how many people are traveling.
--Van ONE will pick up people who arrive early, around 6:30am at the airport and go straight to Paraty (about a 4-5 hour ride).
--Van TWO, will pick up people in downtown Sao Paulo (around 9am?) then go to the airport to pick up people who arrive later in the morning (around 8:30-11:00am), and then go directly to Paraty (about a 4-5 hour ride)
--Van THREE will be like Van TWO, but a day later.
Also, if any of you are local Sao Paulo residents, I'm looking for someone who speaks portuguese and has a local phone for each of the three buses to help coordinate the pick ups.
Please let me know if you can help with this!
