14th of March
For everyone that was part of this unforgettable trip and that will ever be in my memories!
No doubts it was for me and hope for many of you the best experience of our exchange year, a unique opportunity to get together with people all over the world, nice guys and girls, that just people like us with courage to go through this process earn and deserve it. That's why we are here, those moments of happiness, getting to know more about yourselves making international friends or even for your own country that without this year abroad we wouldn't be able to experience it.
Stop to think, we never could imagine living such things, those moments make us sure that we did the correct and the best choice, that the hard (we know are not just few) tomes they come and go, but the positive attitude and those moments they have the power to surmount big challenges, and ma not quitting. We all know it will and it's worthy, and our lives it's never gonna be the same after this.
Since the bad weather that made people upset, the strict policy, the group was strong enough to stay together, we still had fun. And after the sun came to us it was even better, it was like everything was perfect, the adults got more flexible and trusted more on us, so we could enjoy the best of it. Guys we did it, we survived, and had a fabulous time.
We went to Bubba Gump, Dole Pinieaple, Thomas hiked a coconut tree, we learned about the history of Hawaii with the driver of the bus and his hilarious and weird laugh, snorkeled in a beautiful bay (Hanauma Bay), hiked the Diamond Head and had the chance to see the the wonderful view or vista of Hawaii, amazing luau with even a Brazilian danced (haha). We did surfing,got some scratches, some were tanning others tried but didn't work quite well (sun-burn), a lot of fun in the beach during some nights, talent show, hard rock café and much more.
In Pearl Harbor it was amazing to see that we are part of a world that walks to peace, that all this exchange is about, Jumpei from Japan and many others Japaneses visiting the Pearl Harbor Memorial, place where Japaneses attacked US ships and made US get into WWII and did a huge difference in our world history and the way we live, and now we even were there praying and wishing the best for the Japanese people ,after exactly one year of the tragedy of the tsunami. It shows there is always hope, and we want the best for Japan to recovery from the tsunami, faith.
In the last day we went to the Hard Rock Cafe in Honolulu, it was awesome, the results of the elections, fun with friends, awards, and the toughest time of the trip was saying goodbye to friends that were living earlier than the crowd. Some cried, it was a feeling that a hole amazing week was over, I'd like to finish this post saying that I really appreciate all of you and with the picture of the sunset in the last moment in Hawaii!
With the 3 meanings:
-I LOVE YOU!!
