    ... br> Mind you, it certainly does not feel like winter to us- the sea is nice and warm, and each day in Rio got up to around 25-29c. They say in summer the heat and humidity is almost unbearable.

    ... br> I returnt to rest in the histel
    At 16:00 I went to Rio Brancho, the main street in the center, where there are shows. You can´´t imagine what was there: it is a long street, and there were goups of masked people (TACHPOSOT like in our PURIM, nice Tchposot). tHERE WERE THE ¨BATERIAS¨: about 5 trucks with about 12 amplifiers on each.
