      ... de Janeiro state. It remains largely undeveloped and most of it is a national park. For almost a century it was closed by the Brazilian government to free movement or settlement because it first housed a leper colony and the a top-security prison. The prison was closed in 1994. The island is now a popular tourist attraction noted for its scenic beauty, unspoilt tropical beaches, luxuriant vegetation and rugged ...

We played some bat and ball which was abruptly ended by the rip of Shaun's swim shorts. Not just a small rip but his shorts split in half!

      ... knew Brazil was an equatorial country but the first thing that really stands out is the colour of the trees/plant. Here everything is so green! (and it is not like I come from a dry place as you know). Green means rain and equatorial means a lot of rain!
