International Airport of Guarulhos before that time.
For the participants who will also attend LATIN'08, there will be a bus from
the hotel in Buzios to the AofA hotel. This bus will leave Buzios on
Friday, April 11, arriving on Maresias on the afternoon of Saturday;
sleeping will be in a small town half way between Buzios and
Maresias. Here is the list
participants that will be on this bus.
Later we will post detailed information on how to get to Maresias for
the participants that cannot make to the conference bus. For now, let
us just say that there are buses going to Maresias each 3 hours from
the Tietê bus terminal in São Paulo, and that there are frequent buses
from the Airport to the bus terminal.
There will be a bus from the hotel in Maresias to the International
