Hi Tom & Augusto!

Tom, it was fantastic speaking to you the other day. What are your
travel dates for the camp (i.e. will you be staying for a couple of
days either side, we should have a sit-down with Daniela & Pedro, who
will be at the camp also.

Daniela, Pedro - what are your travel dates also? I will try and
pencil a set time to talk about this and grab Jonathan and Rufus to
come along too...

Very excited to talk more about this. I am sure with Brazil's size and
the fact it may be the first of its kind in South America, we will
need lots of input from people on this list about how various
obstacles should be overcome!

Look forward to hearing from you!
