(no subject)

With a lot of work, a lot of waiting, and a lot of help, I managed to get my international warranty card. Two days after I got the card to the service center, they told me that the part they need is not available in the country and that they can't fix my camera. To get it fixed, I need to ship it to the US. However, if it doesn't arrive before the 1st, it wouldn't be covered. I imagine it would take 6 weeks to arrive. I don't want to pay $100 shipping on a gamble.

I need to remind myself that I was coming to São Paulo anyway and that I got to visit a couple of good friends here. I wouldn't have stayed this long, but it is only a few days extra.

Seeing my friends was cool, but I don't think I brought them very good luck. We took a road trip to a nearby city named Santos. It is a beach town (there are no beaches in the city of São Paulo). In my short time here, I managed to meet most of their family.
