 The trip started off at Logan Airport out of Boston. One of the major challenges was to choose the best airline and route. Professor Saravara's background and experience allowed him to choose the best and most convenient route.  The best flight was a layover in Chicago, and then a slightly shorter route over the North Pole which provided less turbulence.

The route included a 747 which is a very reliable plane which has been in service for years.Professor Saravara teaches his classes that attention to detail is important, and he was sure to check seat size, cabin size, and even the seat layout.  Some of the students where seasoned flyers and some weren’t. Professor Saravara had to be prepared for that and anything that might come at him. A complete orientation was held prior to the flight.

After the class landed they took a short ferry to the island, and the students were able to get settle into their dorms and then went out for dinner as a group. On the first day students took a tour of the university, and Sanado square, and the St. Paul ruins.

During this week class also started, Professor Saravara paired the students up with University of Macau Counterparts, which after a short lecture, they worked together on projects.  The first tour of the week was at the Venetian Casino, one of the largest Casinos in Macau.
