This morning we decided that we would take a hike for three hours to get to a secluded beach called Lopes Mendes. To get there we took a track that began at the main village Abraao and continued for three hours through dense jungle. It was awesome to get out and get some hiking done as I haven't yet done that on this trip. Gina and Jess were trailing behind a little as I wanted to set my own pace and not be slowed down, I think all those cadet hikes payed off ! I had ...

Up the hill, down the hill, up, down, etc.

Nonetheless, his paintings were amazing. I just didn’t have that type of money nor an ability to transport this massive wall canvas. If anything, ...

... the taxi driver where we want to go. We want to hike up the mountain, not take a bus. He does not seem to understand this and proceeds to drive us to the base of the mountain. We ask a guard if there is where the climb starts, even though I am 100% positive it is not, and he tells us we can walk up, it is just a road all the way up. We had done some research prior to setting out and knew that we had to go to Parque Lage where the trial began. This ...
