So this will be my last blog about our journey to Brazil. The reason for this is in English is because there are so many people I have to thank for making this amazing journey possible. First of all thank you to Douglas and your fantastic wife Tania and your two kids Gabriel and Rafael for inviting us into their home, for showing us around in Sao Paulo and for bring us around in the car.

Thank you of my heart for letting us stay in your appartment for such a long time, for always beeing happy and to be on time. Thank you for giving us the chance to learn a lot about your soccer school, for meeting the wonderful kids and trying to teach them a bit about soccer.
In Denmark we say that it can be very difficult to become friends with a danish guy, but once it has happend you will have a friend for life! and this is exactly how I feel for your guys. Please know that the door to mi casa wil allways be open for your guys.

Renato and Douglas Papai and Mamai, thank you for picking us up at the train station and for washing our clothes. You are such fantastic people.
Thank you to the volunteers at the school for comming around to translate for us, when we visiting the soccer schools. Especially to Gabriella that used a lot of her time with us, you did a fantastic job.
We meet so many other people that helped us, we never saw anyone that did not wanted to help us, what a amazing country.
So many of you guys might wonder how about Magnus and the soccer. Sandro the guy gave Magnus his finally evaluation, he like him very much as a player. He has some areas where he need to improve and Magnus will go home and work on them. Sandro is going to follow him, so we never know what is going to happend in the future. Magnus has learn a lot of this trip, because Brazilian players are very different than we are used to. If you can combine the best from the two cultures, I guess you can achieve a lot.
For me it has been a fantastic trip, so many thing I have seen. Sao Paulo is a very busy city and it is so hard to come around, because of the traffic and so many people around. For me the city is interesting because of the people that lives there, because evenhough they have a hard working life, they allways are smiling, that is really amazing.
Goodbye Brazil, you will allways have a big place in my heart.
