Day 5 - The transfer to Ilha Grande was nice and easy, picked up from our hostel at 9am and feet on the island sand by 1pm. A short hike up the hill to Holandes Hostel and a heads up about the frequent power cuts due to the rain, gave us a taste of what lay ahead for the next few days.

A break before dinner then out for a meal then an ...

Later that Night Mel accused me of losing her Phone, turns out she had given it to Lesley to keep. I was a bit ****** of with her about that. All water under the bridge now.
Warm up for Rio complete.
