Have already been 1 month that I'm here in this wonderful place and I couldn't be more grateful for all that I'm experiencing. It has been an incredible month, Canada is an extraordinary country with extremely nice and friendly people. I've done a lot of things in just 31 days, it's just unbelievable: I went to the West Edmonton Mall twice, to the movie theatre, I traveled to Banff, Sicamous, Radium and Revelstoke with my host parents, I rode a mountain coaster, I tried wakeboard, I went to the Fringe Festival and I watched 3 plays, I did almost 25km of canoeing and 6 more kilometers hiking with flip-flops on the train tracks (after this I almost couldn't feel my feet), I did mountain biking and picnic, I went to Fort Edmonton with my host brother, I went to a block party, to a farm, a birthday, and a wedding, I ate poutine and my first s'more, among several other things. I also had a fall orientation with the other exchange students from my district at the Chateau Louis Hotel in Edmonton, and it was really cool to meet everyone and get in touch with various cultures. They are all amazing people and I'm very happy to have met them, now we are a big family. We also went to a neon bowling and we had a learning weekend with the Rotary District 5370, our advisors and some rebounds. My classes have already started and I'm enjoying it a lot, I've already made friends, I've joined 3 clubs and I'll start playing sports. This semester I'm taking: social studies, math, chemistry and food studies. I've been to some meetings at my rotary club and it's a lot of fun, the people are very welcoming and funny. I want to thank my parents first, Junior and Adriana, for providing me all this, I want them to know that I couldn't be happier to accomplish one of my biggest dreams and it's being incredible. I want to thank my host Family, Marianne, Erica, Evan, Bren and Rob for giving me a home and welcomed me so well, you are already my family. I want to thank my counsellor Charlene, my host Rotary Club (Rotary Club of St. Albert) and the rotary of my district (Rotary District 5370) for welcoming me this year as their inbound exchange student, it's a privilege to be part of such a wonderful Rotary. I want to thank my Rotary club sponsor, Rotary Club de Garça Real, and my district in Brazil, Rotary District 4510, for believing in me and supporting me on this journey. And I want to thank finally all the people I met in the first month, everybody who talked to me, welcomed me, helped me, the friends I made, the exchange students, everyone who made my dream possible and what they are doing for my year be the best year ever. My sincere thanks! Canada, you are my second home.
