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.

... keen to convince the others it was a crowd of people and plough on, however, I was unable to fool them (& myself as it got louder and louder!) So, we opted to hold fire and wait for trusty locals to catch up with us and follow closely in their footsteps- relying on them for insider knowledge/protection!

... and nothing to do at all. Met up with the ladies from england and we went for breakfast. The hostel breakfast terrible. Managed to find some omelettes, massive as usual and some delicious coffee from a cart, one of the best I have had so far. Desperately needed it! The sun by then had began to shine and it was hot hot hot out. Jumped on another boat, love it, and headed to a beach area called Lopes Mendez, supposed to be one of the best on the island. There was ************e ...
... and I was enjoying swimming and the weather was beautiful and it was all just one big pile of awesome. We met some cool and crazy people; a couple from Yorkshire, Rob the Irish Doctor (yes Dad I did ask if I could marry him and he said no), Deeter from New York with the greatest accent and turns of phrase ('It was hysterical!') and of course the gorgeous Captain flashing his abs at any opportunity. We got a video clip of it that we can use in ...
... I'm not!
One of my new found loves that Brazil has to offer is Acai. Basically Acai are berries, but in Brazil they serve the pulp of the berries frozen like a slushy with pieces of Banana, Granola and Honey on top. It's absolutely amazing, and sooo cheap and refreshing! I plan to each several tubs of it a day!
We awoke on our second day on Ilha Grande once again to beautiful weather (and ...
