And that’s a wrap

9 suit cases packed (on top of 41 boxes in the shipment).

1 cat (most certainly not) ready to go.

Conclusions: I have too much stuff.

Rio has been amazing beyond all expectations.  Today I went to Cristo Redentor for the first time since 2013 to say goodbye to the city that has been my home for the last 4 years.

Tomorrow, I have to go to the airport for midday, for a 10pm flight… to check in the cat…

To everyone who has been part of my life here – thank you!  You have made my time the incredible experience it has been.  I hope I will be able to see you all again in the future at some point, somewhere!

To anyone who reads this blog, who is thinking of coming to Rio…  what can I say.  I haven’t been to a place of more contrasts.  In the end, I am glad I am leaving now – 4 years has been enough I feel.  At the same time, I feel the most sorrow now of any point I’ve been here.  Concluding a project like Rio 2016 with 4 years of my life put in to it, and moving away from all the friends I have made here, is a very emotional thing.
