After 3 nights in Rio it was time to move. We tried to book our tickets to Paraty last night but internet sites in Brazil are a joke. So we decided to wing it and pack up all our kit and head to the bus station. Little did we know this was a very popular route with the locals and tourists. Arriving at the bus station at 10am we were told there was …
... murky but I am not complaining it will be used.Whats more the wi fi connection works and i sighed in relief as a smoker might after a days abstinence.I went immediately into town once I had checked in for a sneaky preview but I will save that for tomorrows entry.it does look like that there will be some Mardi Gras (carnival) activity while i am here so i believe it is time to stoke up the liver in readiness.

Once done with all the sliding it was time to head back to Paraty. Again as we arrived the clouds began to form. Taking this as a sign we booked bus tickets to Sao Paulo and quickly made a break for the supermarket as we had decided to make ourselves dinner. After a surprisingly dignified dinner, we said goodbye to one of our travel buddies, Omid, who had accompanied us on all our previous ...

... say that we wanted to stay a while and asked about the rate but they wouldn’t budge from the standard rate even though they accepted that I could book the same room in the same hostel for less by doing it online on their computer! They also tried to charge me completely the wrong amount for the nights we did stay and forgot to charge us for the boat trip.

Its a pretty nice place. A new owner has recently taken it over and they are really trying to improve the place, but it is a little rough around the edges currently (nothing major, just a little worn). The people who run it are really lovely and helpful and I'm sure that once they have had it for a few more months it will look great. The breakfast was incredible - it ran the entire lenght of a pretty big table - loads of stuff.
