On this last week we're finishing the assembly of our new bogie design and it's gonna be ready for fabrication after today, I hope. I designed a new system for propulsion and I'm going to leave it with the team for them to choose or not if they want to use some parts or all of it in the final assembly.
After that I wanna thanks to all the people I worked with it here in San Jose and all the great places that I've hade the opportunity to visit in California! It was a life changing experience, not just the California experience but all this year that I've been living in USA through this exchange program. I'll definetly come back to Brazil as a more mature person and with better ideas of what I want to do with my life and my profession! I cannot stop to say thanks all the time because that's the way I'm feeling right now, thankful.
Thank you very much you all! Hope to see you soon!

Those past weeks since I've started working with my team at the bogie, I've been learning so much about what mechanical engineering really is. We were having brainstorm and ideas about a new design for the bogie. This really made me think for solutions and improvements that would be useful, looking into the problems of the previous team. We are finishing the new design, adding the idea of a retractil jack, to make easier to take out and put it back again the bogie on the track. I hope this week we finish the model and start to work on its construction.
