    Will be going there in the spring. Any travel tips/advice/stories/etc?

    It's the kidnapping capital of Brazil, right? That is pretty impressive considering the stiff competition from Rio de Janeiro!

    I almost got to go to Brazil with Rotary two years ago.
    I was very disappointed it didn't work out.

    Sounds like it should be a fun place to visit Rusty.

    Been there on business a few times. We don't travel anywhere without security.

    What's the nature of the trip, if you don't mind me asking?
    Before I joined Rotary I was part of a group study exhcange trip to Nigeria. Five weeks in the delta region. It was intense.

    It's a GSE trip. We'll be staying outside of the city, more in the state of Sao Paulo. But I have to imagine we'll be spending some time seeing what the city has to offer.

    That's cool. I hope you have a great experience.
    Our GSE trip was challenging, but it was a really rewarding experience.

    Several years after being part of the GSE team, I finally joined Rotary.
    And two years ago I applied to be a GSE team leader for a trip to Brazil. I didn't get selected.
    They asked me to reapply for a trip to Korea the following year, but I had already started my master's program and didn't have the time.

    I'm sure you'll get a lot out of the GSE experience.
