        After beautiful Bonito, the rest Brazil had a hard act to follow and after a mammoth journey of a flight to Sao Paulo a night in an airport hotel and another 2 flights we finally made it to Salvador. You don't really appreciate the size of Brazil until you start to plan a journey and realise that their bus network is appalling and getting anywhere without wasting a day in transit is near on impossible and even flying is likely going to take a day and will send you on ...

We had some very good soup for dinner and then goofed around some more talking to my friends Meaghan and Zoe back home. It was toooooo funny. Soon Vini got home and we talked about mom and Connor and soup haha. While it was a chill day, it was a really good day. A good time recovering after being sick last week. Lots of laughs and good sister bonding time. ...

        ... names on the tickets were actually us, took our sign off us and let us go. Meanwhile Tony Tony was taking photos of the whole episode as he and Clean Shirt looked on from the other side of the street. With professional touts left to be questioned, we followed the advice of the policeman to go and sell our tickets away from his area.
